Bring It Food Hub is excited to welcome two more staff members for the CSA season: Jim Brown and Rob Coleman.
Jim Brown, Food Hub Driver
Jim joins Bring It Food Hub again for his second season as a food hub driver. Jim V. Brown III is a native of Chattanooga and moved to Nashville in 2005 to start working for Nashville Homeless Power Project in 2006. Jim started out as a volunteer and in 6 months, he was the Outreach Coordinator. After serving in this position, Jim knew that this was the work he wanted to do. He studied at American Baptist College and has now been an advocate for 8 years. Jim felt like something was missing so he moved to Memphis and began working at the Mid-South Peace and Justice Center at the fundamental grassroots level with Homeless Organizing for Power and Equality.
Rob Coleman, Food Hub Assistant
Rob Coleman was born and raised in Memphis, TN. He studied biology at the University of Memphis, and later went on to work in a genetics lab that researches crop carrot and the native, endangered Whorled Sunflower.

He also has backyard chickens and maintains a vast backyard edible garden and landscape.
