The Journey Begins

Mommy’s Cupboard is a permaculture based market garden and education center dedicated to serving low-income, new, and expectant mothers. Our vision is to increase positive and healthy maternal and pediatric outcomes by focusing on natural fresh food production, nutrition, and community connectedness through childbirth and early childhood development education. In addition Mommy’s Cupboard serves as a homestead education and sustainable living demonstration space.

Why mothers in 5th Ward and Denver Harbor?

Highest infant mortality rates

High rates of infant malnutrition in low income communities

Low breastfeeding rates among African American and Hispanic communities

Food insecurity/food desert

African American women are 4 times more likely to die from childbirth than white women

Hispanic women are 2 times more likely to die than white women

High need for pre- and postnatal maternal and infant support in low income communities.

Mommy’s Cupboard will operate on a 5,500 square foot lot nestled in the beautiful 5th Ward community at 0 Arapahoe St. between Calles and Finnegan Dr., Houston TX 77020

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
