BENEFITING: Brighter Bites

EVENT: Austin Marathon 2017

EVENT DATE: Feb 19, 2017

THE STORY:

Brighter Bites is thrilled to be a partner with the Austin Marathon and Half-Marathon. We are currently working with 1800 families at 8 Austin ISD elementary schools in south and east Austin.

The mission of Brighter Bites is to create communities of health through fresh food, and we accomplish this mission through a three-step program:

Food Access 
We bring fresh, seasonal produce to where kids already are: preschools, elementary and middle schools, summer camps, and after-school programs for participants to pick up and take home – a pair of bags that contain 50-60 servings (approximately 30 pounds) of fruits and vegetables. 

Food Literacy
We provide nutrition handbooks, tip sheets, and recipes for parents that incorporate the week’s fresh produce. These are linked to children’s in-class nutrition lessons from CATCH and other evidence-based coordinated school health programs we help implement via our trained staff.

Food Engagement
Our team prepares healthy and tasty new “brighter bites” (samples) for families to try, using one or more of the produce items being shared that week.

We are looking for runners to join Team Brighter Bites in our race to deliver healthy food choices into the homes, minds, and mealtimes of families in Austin.
