Healthy Fresh Fruits and Veggies for Everyone!
We worked closely with Brighter Bites, an organization that partnered with our school this year, to pass out bags of fresh fruit and veggies to all community members, students, staff, and families. Every Tuesday, the Brighter Bites Foundation came to our school and let us help pass out approximately 357 bags of fresh produce each week. Families also got to have a taste-test every Tuesday, which was a big hit!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We've seen an increase in students choosing healthier foods and trying more things like grapefruit, which they normally wouldn't try.
