The Mid-South multi-farm community-supported agriculture nonprofit Bring It Food Hub is reaping a harvest of growth and new offerings.
An affiliate of Memphis Tilth, Bring It Food Hub distributes local produce and farm products in the Memphis area. In addition to weekly produce shares, the venture will offer add-on shares during the summer 2016 season that include locally grown and sourced bread, eggs, cheese and fresh-cut flowers.
In addition to more than three dozen weekly pick-up locations available citywide, Bring It now also offers a home-delivery option for Midtown on Friday afternoons.
According to Bring It’s new executive director Carol Colter, at this point in the organization’s calendar last year about 60 season shares had been purchased. Today, it’s surpassed 200 shares in advance of the season that officially begins on May 3.
Subscriptions can be purchased on a monthly or season-long basis from May through November.
The nonprofit has also rebranded its website (bringitfoodhub.com), social media and marketing channels in partnership with creative communications consulting firm DCA
