Brighter Bites Second Anniversary Gala Raises Over $450,000 to Aid Under-Resourced Communities

The gala took place on March 27th in Houston, Texas at The Revaire, and featured guest speakers Daniel Goetz, founder of GoodPop, Becca Dittrich, VP of impact at Chobani, and Chris Shepherd, chef and founding director of the Southern Smoke Foundation. The 400 attendees heard from each speaker on how their organizations work to support local food systems, to encourage community wellness, and to responsibly use fresh, wholesome ingredients.

As part of the celebration, the nonprofit raised over $450,000 through table sponsorships as well as from the silent auction held during the event. These proceeds will go toward continuing to expand Brighter Bites’ reach to helping under-resourced communities throughout the U.S.

“We are so very thankful to all of the sponsors, donors, volunteers, partners, and employees who make our program possible,” said Lisa Helfman, founder and board chair of Brighter Bites. “With the generosity we received not only at the gala but throughout the year, we will continue to push and expand the work we do to help create communities of health and wellness across the nation.”
