For the past three years, four of our Philadelphia locations have participated in the Ready, Set, Grow! program created by the Food Trust. The purpose of the program is to provide families with support on making better food choices and educating them on nutritional values through sessions, activities, and much more. The four locations taking part in the program are 23rd & Allegheny, 48th & Brown, Plaza and 54th & Media. Our families have the opportunity to receive Food Bucks they are able to use at local designated corner stores and markets.
At Brightside Academy we are passionate about educating the community and our families. Through the partnership with Philadelphia’s Food Trust we have been successful in accomplishing our goal. We give a huge thank you to Edward Koch, Philadelphia PreK Counts Coordinator, for helping to create this partnership.
