The Brownsville Wellness Coalition offers various programs to increase  access to fresh, healthy food.

The Happy Kitchen/La Cocina® Cooking and Nutrition Program

The Happy Kitchen/La Cocina® Cooking and Nutrition Program is an interactive 6-week series of classes, which emphasize the selection and preparation of fresh, seasonal foods that are nutritious, economical, and delicious. Classes meet once a week for 1 ½ hours to cook, discuss, and learn together. Everyone leaves each class with recipes and groceries to practice new cooking skills.  The Happy kitchen is a program of the Sustainable Food Center.

Brownsville Farmer's Market

The Brownsville Farmer's Market brings locally grown produce that is natural and free of pesticides straight from the farm to your table.  The market , which is located in downtown Brownsville, increases the access of healthy food options to the community.  The Farmers’ Market is open every Saturday at Linear Park from 9am to noon.

FRESCO Mobile Market

The Fresco Mobile Market provides abundant and easy access to  fresh fruits and vegetables to communities of low income and low transportation.
