Brighter Bites empowers underserved families to choose better, brighter foods by providing fresh produce and nutrition education for greater health.
Brighter Bites is a locally started, globally minded team of parents, educators, nutritionists and volunteers who hope to make our world brighter, one bite at a time. Every week, we deliver fresh fruits and vegetables directly into our kids’ hands, teaching them how to use and choose a different kind of fast food. Along with recipe cards, nutrition facts, and ideas for preparation, we send children home from school with bags chock full of everything from apples and oranges to kale and cauliflower - a colorful variety of foods all delicious and nutritious in their own unique way. Brighter Bites is rooted in the belief that if we give our kids something better to munch on, they will. And the lives they lead will be as vibrant as the foods they crave. Brighter choices. Brighter outlooks. Brighter Bites.™ Partner Program with the Houston Food bank.

This is a great cause and organization to volunteer with because it is empowering parents to learn new habits to feed their children fresh fruits and veggies. I helped with the childcare so parents could sort and sack the produce. It was fun and challenging with three to four toddlers. It was actually more fun with more toddlers.
