Sample Governance: Harris County BUILD Health Partnership

Partners in Harris County sought to reduce food insecurity in North Pasadena, Texas, a predominantly Hispanic, working-class suburb of Houston. They came together to create a community-supported food system to increase knowledge, demand, and availability of healthy food among the community. This is the governance structure they used to define the roles and responsibilities, relationships, and agency leads for the executive, backbone, and cross-cutting committees, all of which were made up of non-profit organization, hospital/health system, and health department partners.
