May drink & featured non profit!

Midtown Muddy's May drink of the month... The Mochanut!

True story: For Muddy's Midtown May Drink of the Month, we were craving something a little sweet and slightly tropical-- especially now that the warmer weather is finally here! With that in mind, gnomies Leah, Janie and Andrea developed something truly delicious to share. You're going to love The Mochanut: a delicious cold brew latte mixed with chocolate and coconut syrup. Try it hot or iced today!

 

And another May update...

Featured Nonprofit: Memphis Tilth

We are so excited to have Memphis Tilth as the non-profit recipient of our Positive Change Jar for May! Memphis Tilth has a very clear mission: to cultivate collective action for an economically sustainable, socially equitable, and environmentally sound local food system. Tilth is an English word that means quality of soil, but an even older meaning of the word means “cultivation of wisdom and the spirit”. Since 2015, Memphis Tilth has been helping Memphians learn about healthy eating, grow urban gardens, and link land, food, people and community together.

Memphis Tilth tackles their mission with a variety a distinct programs:

  1. The Bring It Food Hub, which promotes community development in Memphis and the Mid-South by increasing access to healthy, affordable local foods and strengthening farmer livelihoods.
  2. The Food and Faith Initiative, which promotes health of land and community through church-supported agriculture.
  3. The Community Kitchen, which features programming for the promotion of culinary education, shared meal preparation, and value-added production.
  4. The GrowMemphis Community Gardens Program, which helps communities build gardens to improve access to locally grown food in their neighborhoods.
  5. New for 2018: The Alpha Omega Veterans Services Urban Farm and Garden, which will help with increasing the availability of healthy fruits and vegetables to veteran residents at AOVS facilities, as well as teach urban farming to residents there.

At Muddy’s, we don’t accept tips for our service or charge for drip coffee refills; we believe in thriveable wages for great work and we fundraise for local nonprofits through our "Refill Our Community With Positive Change" jar. Each month our staff selects a Memphis non-profit organization, and 100% of those community funds go to support their mission.

This month will be donated to Memphis Tilth. Learn more about them here.

April featured Non Profit- Literacy Midsouth

Featured Nonprofit: Literacy Mid-South

We are so excited to have Literacy Mid-South as the non-profit recipient of our Positive Change Jar for April! Literacy Mid-South provides literacy resources for learners of all ages and backgrounds. In the U.S., 30 million people over age 16, or 14% of the country’s adult population, don’t read well enough to understand a newspaper story written at the eighth grade level or fill out a job application. An additional 63 million can only read at a fifth grade level or lower. Literacy Mid-South works every day to lower these numbers.

Literacy Mid-South tackles their mission with four distinct programs:

  1. The Adult Learning Program at Literacy Mid-South has provided small group and one-on-one education services to adults who read on a 6th-grade level or below for more than thirty years.
     
  2. The English For You Program serves adults of any nationality who want to improve their English. They tutor individually or in small groups for conversation, reading, and writing using a curriculum designed for beginning-level adult ESL collaborative learning groups.
     
  3. The Read Memphis Project builds the capacity of other organizations, churches, nonprofits and groups to create new or improve existing community-based literacy and ESL centers throughout the Mid-South.
     
  4. Read901 is a city-wide initiative hosted by Literacy Mid-South that aims to have all students reach grade-level reading by the end of the 3rd grade.

At Muddy’s, we don’t accept tips for our service or charge for drip coffee refills; we believe in thriveable wages for great work and we fundraise for local nonprofits through our "Refill Our Community With Positive Change" jar. Each month our staff selects a Memphis non-profit organization, and 100% of those community funds go to support their mission.
This month will be donated to Literacy Mid-South. Learn more about them here.

You can participate by, of course, throwing some change in the jar, but also by nominating a nonprofit that's making a difference in our community!
