Join your us for an interesting discussion with Lisa Helfman. She is the Senior Director of Public Affairs Houston for H-E-B Grocery Company and served previously as their Director of Real Estate. Prior to joining H-E-B in 2014, Lisa served as Director of Real Estate Services at Texas Children’s Hospital where she created the Real Estate Services Department in order to centralize the hospital’s real estate operations. Lisa worked at Texas Children’s for seven years after leaving Vinson & Elkins law firm where she represented many urban redevelopment clients, non-profits, and government entities in financings, real estate, and other legal matters. Lisa received her JD Magna Cum Laude from the University of Houston Law Center and her BA Cum Laude from Tulane University.
When she isn’t representing H-E-B in the community, she is pushing kale smoothies to children all over underserved communities as the Founder and Board Chair of Brighter Bites. Because nutrition education in these communities is often equally lacking , Lisa’s vision was to bring a produce co-op to schools in these neighborhoods that included an educational component while also making it fun. She created a collaborative partnership with the University of Texas School of Public Health, and launched the program now known as Brighter Bites in 2012. Ten years later, Brighter Bites has delivered almost 50,000,000 pounds of fresh produce and 100,000s of education materials to more than 500,000 individuals (including teachers!) across 200+ participating schools in Houston, Dallas, Austin, New York City, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Northern California, and Southwest Florida.
