Helping Our Planet Evolve started this petition to Eagle Pass City Council and

Hispanic communities are more prone to lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease because of unhealthy eating habits in addition to strategic marketing campaigns from junk food companies that damage the human body and brain.

Creating local community gardens will give access to organic nutrient-dense food to residents and restaurants, this will promote the health of not only the people of eagle pass but the local environment and native wildlife. Having healthier citizens will promote healthier relationships as studies have shown that malnourished individuals are prone to feeling discontent and socially irritated.

These local gardens will also give the people a common purpose to work towards, creating a sense of community,  belonging, and fostering neighborly unity in our city. In addition to boosting people's immune system through organic nutrient-dense food, these local gardens will also create food security for the city of Eagle Pass as COVID-19 has shown that we have none and depend on out of town farmers whos practices only degrade the soil and the environment. By creating a healthy and sustainable environment we will foster healthy individuals, who can take better action towards creating a sustainable and community-oriented city. Generating our own food will also boost the economy since we will no longer be paying out of town companies that do not have our community's best interest in mind. With health, we will have well-being and with sustainability, we will have a brighter future.
