Brighter Bites in the Big Apple

If you’ve been keeping up with Brighter Bites’s Facebook and Instagram feeds, you know that we have some exciting news we’re bursting to share. Drum roll please…

Brighter Bites is in New York City!


Today marks our very first day of distribution in the Big Apple, where we’ll begin serving our tried and true nutrition education program to students and families of the Variety Boys and Girls Club of Queens. Led by our newest Program Director, Melanie Button, the Brighter Bites NYC team will bring the three-step Brighter Bites formula of fresh produce distribution, nutrition education, and a fun food experience to a brand new community.

New York is the fourth city to house Brighter Bites programming (after Houston, Dallas, and Austin) and the first city outside of Texas. This big step for Brighter Bites was taken in collaboration with City Harvest, a New York-based food rescuer and distributor, and D’Arrigo Bros. Co. of New York, a wholesale produce supplier in the New York metro area. This launch coincides with Brighter Bites’ 5th birthday, which we celebrated earlier this week. That’s five years of creating communities of health and over 14 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables distributed.

How ’bout them apples?
