Brighter Bites expands summer programming through partnership

Brighter Bites partners with GoodPop for 2023 summer programming

HOUSTON – July 24, 2023 – Brighter Bites, BB #:371141 a national nonprofit that delivers fresh fruits and vegetables directly into families’ hands, announces partnership with GoodPop, a better-for-you frozen treat that uses fresh, organic, non-GMO, real, and wholesome ingredients.

Since its founding, GoodPop has been committed to helping fight against hunger in America by providing access to healthy meals for those who need it most. A donation made by GoodPop will enable Brighter Bites to enhance its summer programming and provide watermelon, one of the main ingredients in GoodPop’s Watermelon Agave frozen pops, to members of the Austin and San Antonio communities.

“We are honored to have a partner such as GoodPop to support our mission, especially during our summer programming months,” said Rich Dachman, CEO of Brighter Bites. “Summer programming presents its own unique set of challenges outside of the regular school year and having partners support us during this time of the year is always welcomed and appreciated.”

Since 2009, Austin-based GoodPop has been committed to using fresh ingredients, offering better-for-you frozen treats made without artificial colors, flavors and preservatives for those who crave a world of good.

As a certified B Corp, GoodPop creates everyday social good via fair trade ingredient sourcing, humanitarian efforts, and The Pledge Good Foundation, created to encourage more generosity, kind gestures and good deeds.

“After our team had the pleasure of volunteering with Brighter Bites earlier this summer, it was clear that we’re on similar journeys to leave the world better than we found it,” said Clara Tomlin, Director of Brand Impact at GoodPop.

“We look forward to supporting Brighter Bites during the summer months and how we can potentially work together going into the 2023-2024 school year.”
