Food Ministry Promotes Healthy Eating

A local man is trying to help Abilene eat healthier by putting fresh fruits and vegetables in their backyards. The founder of Hug A Root says the food ministry's goal is to promote healthier eating habits while instilling a good work ethic.

The faith-based ministry has been around for two years, and working with The Mission Abilene for about a year. The group of volunteers installs gardens to help locals grow their own food.

Hug A Root also educates locals on healthy eating habits while using the intensive labor to show what a good ethic can produce.

Josh Casey, the founder, says they hope to become a non-profit in the near future. And they are in the process of building a community garden in North Abilene. That is expected to be finished next summer.
