A new bone broth subscription company has recently launched in New York City with a focus on community, compassion, and wellbeing rather than profits or optimization. Their ethos centers around sourcing high-quality ingredients from local farms and showing care for customers, suppliers and the environment.
Why Bone Broth?
Bone broth has recently gained attention for its potential health benefits. Made by simmering animal bones and connective tissue for an extended time, bone broth contains compounds like collagen, proline, glycine and glutamine. Some research suggests it may support joint health, gut health and sleep.
However, the founders of this new company believe the communal experience of sharing bone broth is just as important for wellness. Their delivery service aims to nourish relationships in neighborhoods across NYC.
Ingredients for the bone broth come exclusively from regenerative farms within 150 miles of the city. The chickens and cattle are pasture-raised and grass-fed. Bones and scraps get collected for broth, preventing food waste.
Deliveries get made by bicycle throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn. This reduces environmental impact and allows the delivery team to stop and chat with customers along their routes.
Prices Based on Ability to Pay
Instead of fixed costs, customers pay sliding-scale subscriptions based on their financial situation. Some pay the full $15 per week, while others pay as little as $5. The goal is for everyone to access nourishing food.
