Brighter Bites is a non-profit organization that distributes free local produce to families using a three-part formula: Produce Distribution, Nutrition Education, and a Fun Food Experience. Their mission is to target increasing food access and food literacy for kids to create healthier habits.
During the official kickoff celebration, two dozen Harlandale High School students helped bag hundreds of pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables for distribution.
As part of the partnership with HISD, Brighter Bites will serve six Harlandale ISD campuses, directly impacting more than 720 families and providing 115,200 pounds of fresh produce. Brighter Bites plans to further expand its reach into more HISD campuses in the fall semester.
