Brightside: Offering New Hope for Food Deserts Run by students at the University of St. Thomas, Minneapolis-based Brightside Produce delivers fresh produce at discount prices to stores in low-income neighborhoods, such as Fremont Market in north Minneapolis. Since its founding in 2014, BrightSide has attracted national attention for its business model—buying in bulk and supplying fruit and veg- etables to two dozen convenience stores in low-income neighborhoods. BrightSide then sells whatever is left at a small profit to a group of customers on the university campus. So far, BrightSide sells about $40,000 worth of produce a year in the Twin cities, and relies heavily on a volunteer workforce. "Save the Food" Campaign: Combatting Food Waste The Ad Council and the Natural Resources Defense Council have launched the second phase of their Save the Food national public service campaign, aimed at combatting consumer food waste by raising awareness and empowering people with the tools they need to waste less food and money. For phase two, the groups are releasing: a video with Dan Barber, chef and co-own- er of Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns; a new "Save the Food" Alexa skill; an update to NRDC's Wasted report that provides new statistics and analysis on the environmental, social, and economic impacts of food waste; and data based on consumer action and awareness around the issue. Save the Food's success has been closely tracked through a study commissioned by the Ad Council, which shows that awareness is growing nationwide among the campaign's target audience of moms and millennials.
