BRING IT FOOD HUB MANAGER / email Kelvin

Kelvin is a native Memphian, with deep ties to our region’s food culture. Kelvin’s grandfather established Memphis’ famed Interstate Barbecue in 1979, where he began working at a young age to learn the family business. Although now a practicing vegetarian, Kelvin owes his love of food and his earliest business lessons to working alongside his family. Kelvin earned a Bachelor's degree from the University of Memphis, studying Finance and Organizational Leadership. Along with Kelvin’s passion for business, he has a strong desire to create food systems change for our city, and for our region. In his words, “My goal is to one day see the ever-present problem of food access greatly diminished. I have a desire to be an intricate part of an improved community and city, that as a whole, has made me become such a proud ambassador of Memphis.”
