Brighter Bites is a nonprofit with the mission of creating communities of health through fresh food. We run a three-part, evidence-based forumula that delivers fresh produce directly into families' hands. We teach them how to use it through comprehensive nutrition education, and track their positive behavior change over time. Our ultimate goal is to increase demand for and sustainable consumption of fresh foods to reduce health disparties among populations that are already disproportionately vulnerable to childhood obesity and other diet-related diseases.
Brighter Bites started in Houston, TX in 2012, initially serving 150 families in one elementary school. Since then, and as a testament to the scalability of our program, we’ve expanded to six cities in four states and together with our partners have collectively distributed over 30 million pounds of produce and millions of nutrition education materials to more than 350,000 individuals, including teachers. We currently have over 25,000 underserved children and their families enrolled in the program across 102 elementary schools in Houston, Dallas, Austin, New York City, D.C., and Southwest Florida.
