BrightSide Produce

BrightSide Produce co-founders Adam Pruitt, Deedee Fuller, and Carly Dent

One project that has emerged from Stewardship Science is BrightSide Produce, a financially sustainable business model to make fresh produce more available in low-income urban neighborhoods in Minneapolis, Minnesota. BrightSide was founded in June 2014 as a collaboration among local youth (Adam Pruitt, Deedee Fuller), the University of St. Thomas, and Community Table Co-op. The core operation involves a team of neighborhood youth and university students who make regular deliveries to corner stores in underserved areas. To learn more about BrightSide, visit or contact
