About Brighter Bites and Our COVID-19 Hunger Relief Efforts

Thank you for your interest in supporting Brighter Bites Wine for a Cause, a wine silent auction we launched to support tens of thousands of food insecure households nationwide currently suffering through the greatest hunger disaster in modern history.

Now more than ever, children and families need more than just calories to keep their stomachs full — they need fresh, nutrient-dense foods to stay healthy and fight off COVID-19 illness. Ensuring food insecure households have the ability to put healthy foods on the table during this economic and public health crisis demands swift action from all of us. By supporting this event, you're helping Brighter Bites ensure we have the resources we need to continue helping families survive this pandemic.

Brighter Bites is a nonprofit with the mission of creating communities of health through fresh food. Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, we had 25,000 families nationwide enrolled in the program across 100 schools, with each family receiving 25 lbs of fresh produce and nutrition education on a weekly basis. Then COVID-19 hit, schools shuttered, and families lost access to this fresh produce they were dependent on for daily nourishment. The situation for these families right now is more dire than you can probably imagine. From not having enough money to put food on the table, to utility suspension notices and threats of eviction, COVID-19 has devastated our families that were already struggling to make ends meet. 

Your participation in this auction directly supports Brighter Bites' COVID-19 response efforts. Including:

  • Retail grocery vouchers: We've teamed up with major grocery chains like H-E-B and Winn-Dixie, and are sending vouchers directly to families to redeem on fruit and vegetable purchases in a safe and dignified environment until this crisis subsides. 
  • Home delivery of fresh produce: In markets where we don't have a retail partner, such as New York, Brighter Bites is re-employing restaurant workers and delivery drivers to help package and deliver boxes of fresh produce directly to families' doors. 
  • Community distributions: Finally, we are also organizing large-scale community distributions to serve up to 1,200 families at a time with fresh produce while complying with CDC safety guidelines. 

Thank you for your commitment to ensuring at-risk families nationwide are able to access the healthy food they need to stay healthy during these unprecedented times.

We are humbled by the support of our incredible partners:
