Brighter Bites and Dallas ISD have joined forces to distribute fresh food to families through the USDA’s Farmers to Families Food Box program. The program was started by the USDA in April, during the height of the COVID-19 crisis, and aims to distribute fresh food to underserved families. The Dallas program includes distributions at schools, YMCAs, and other community organizations.
Currently the program includes weekly distributions every Thursday at Dallas ISD schools. Dallas ISD recently distributed a press release about its school outreach, which was picked up by Patch.com.
