We invite you to join us for a BrightSide Dinner, an evening of sharing delicious food and inspiring conversation with the student and youth partners who have made BrightSide Produce a success. BrightSide is the nation’s only financially sustainable business model for delivering fresh fruits and vegetables to corner stores in underserved urban areas. Many of the youth who help run BrightSide live in North Minneapolis where poverty, violence, and drug-abuse is common. Rather than having these experiences define them, they have used them as motivation to change their communities. We think that you will be inspired by their stories and their partnerships with St Thomas students, and we hope that you will leave our dinner with a deeper appreciation of their accomplishments.
