👋Time to catch up with the Austin programming team!
Pounds of fresh fruits and veggies served thus far:
📈Total pounds distributed as of 4/26: 645,345.31 pounds
Produce stand out items:

🥬Varieties of lettuce from the Salad Farm!
Two outstanding teachers to highlight:
☀️Janet Ruth Mangum, PK teacher from Andrews Elementary, brings her class outside with her to pick up their classroom Brighter Bites box & does the Produce Activity outdoors! We call that a fun field trip!
🧅Ms. Classen’s PK4 class at Pecan Springs grew their own onions!
🥕@imperfectfoods has provided weekly donations of a variety of beautiful fruit!
🚲 We recently piloted the "Brighter Bites by Bike" program in partnership with Ghisallo Cycling Initiative at Oak Springs Elementary. @ghisallocycling staff delivered 30 boxes (600 pounds) by bike to families who could not pick up their box due to transportation/time constraints.
