Brown-Bagging It!

Braeden Mannering is a kid on a mission. In 2013, the 10-year-old from Delaware was selected as a winner of the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge and got to eat dinner with First Lady Michelle Obama. Through this experience, Braeden started “3B: Brae’s Brown Bags” as a way to serve nutritious snacks to people in need. His easy-to-carry bags contain healthy food, warm clothes, and a brochure with information about local soup kitchens and shelters. Recently, our Bear location had the opportunity to partner with Braeden to raise money for his project; we were honored to have Sen. Bryan Townsend drop by too! Thanks for inspiring us all, Braeden, and keep handing out those brown bags!
