|Perks||At Bring It Food Hub, you will get to experience our local food system at work! You'll meet the farmers who grow our food, and gain a better understanding of what produce is in season, and how it's procured and aggregated across Memphis. We source fresh and unique varieties of produce that are all grown within a 150 mile radius of Memphis, Tennessee. So if you're looking to understand our local food landscape--what we grow, how we eat it, and share it with others--look no further than Bring It Food Hub. |
You will also gain a stronger understanding of how a food hub model operates. Memphis Tilth is a 501(c)(3) entity, so this is also a great opportunity for anyone wishing to develop their skills in the nonprofit field.
