In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, Brighter Bites was unable to deliver its standard program to families due to school closures. Instead, in partnership with the UTHealth School of Public Health, Brighter Bites deployed a rapid epidemiological assessment qualitative methodology to identify families in need and support their most acute social needs.
