    Why Relay?

    Save time, save your community, save the planet! With Relay, you support area shops and farms—keeping dollars local. You drive less, so the earth is happier. By not driving all over town, well, you’re happier. Simple!

    Our Story

    The Relay community began one day in 2008 with Founder & CEO, Zach Buckner. After driving home from one food store too many, he had a vision: Shop for quality food from local stores, online. No more driving everywhere! Just order online.

    Our Mission

    The Relay mission is to make eating quality, healthy, and sustainable food simple.

    We will accomplish this mission by educating individuals and families about the food we offer, creating connections between food producers and customers, and by delivering purchases to easily accessible locations. Learn more.

    Our Values

    Though Relay was founded from humble beginnings, we carry some big ambitions—for ourselves, for our company, for the world. Each day, we counsel everyone at Relay to remember that a clear conscience is always more valuable than an extra dollar. In this way, honesty and hard work will always prevail over shortcuts.
