Brighter Bites is Right on Target in Houston and Dallas!


This summer Brighter Bites teamed up with Target to bring our not-so-secret formula to thousands of families in Houston and Dallas. We were so excited about this partnership, we changed the design of our bags for the summer to include the popular Target bullseye alongside our cute Brighter Bites apple. Notice how the reds work together? This was a designer’s dream come true!


Texas may be hot, but that didn’t stop our volunteers from bagging hundreds of thousands of pounds of produce this summer! In Houston and Dallas combined, we bagged and distributed nearly 300,000 pounds of produce. That’s equal to approximately 835,000 servings of fruits and veggies!

Fruits and veggies are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. The abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables available during the summer season makes maintaining a healthy diet easy! Eating in season is not only budget friendly, but fruits and veggies harvested in their peak season retain their maximum vitamins and nutrients, making them the better choice for your health!


This summer our team gave out a wide variety of delicious and nutritious produce, including cantaloupe, strawberries, peaches, corn, and green beans! Cantaloupe has high water content helping you stay hydrated all day long. Strawberries are not only a sweet treat; they also fight against cancer and aging. Peaches boost your immune system and aid in maintaining skin and eye health. Corn improves digestive health and helps lower LDL cholesterol levels. Green beans are a great source of vitamin K promoting healthy bones. These are just a few examples of the plentiful benefits our families enjoyed from our colorful summer produce! Remember to “eat the rainbow” to receive a variety of nutrients!
