About Me

My name is Braeden, I was born on October 12, 2003.

I like to draw my own Pokemon cards and comic books. I also like to write short stories and swim.

I won the 2013 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge and got to go to The White House for the Kids’ State Dinner. The First Lady Michelle Obama asked me how I would pay the experience forward. I came up with the idea for Brae’s Brown Bags.

About 3B

Braeden Mannering, Chief Executive Officer

Christy Mannering, Chief Operating Officer

Our mission is to provide healthy snacks to homeless and low-income individuals. Every bag includes a letter from Braeden, contact information for additional services who can provide further assistance. Three healthy snacks (each one is below 180 calories) and a bottle of water.

Our belief is that every person regardless of their financial situation deserves to have access to healthy food. This helps to balance the paradox between obesity and food insecurity.

What started as one brown bag branched off into multiple important directions including: three specialty bags, giving talks to groups about food insecurity with a special interest in talking with youth and in raising money to help other hunger relief organizations.

Brae’s Brown Bags provide hope and nourishment to each person who receives one.
