A Charlottesville-based online grocery company is delivering a Thanksgiving spread that is benefiting area businesses and farms.
Relay Foods is packing up and shipping out last minute holiday orders from its fulfillment center in the city. Offerings include free-range turkeys, fresh produce and desserts from area stores such as Hot Cakes and Bread Works.
The partnerships have also given several central Virginia farms a big economic boost this year.
“We work with them specifically around this holiday saying let's see what we can really do to step it up. You can always find those vendors on our site, they are great partners for us and we knew that we could do something pretty special successful,” said Jill Douthit, chief financial officer for Relay Foods.
Relay still has some frozen turkeys left for anyone who is interested in the Charlottesville area. You have until midnight Tuesday to place an order.
