We are living in trying times. By now we know you’ve heard from many businesses about how they are responding to COVID-19. We want to assure you that we are determined to continue our role of connecting households and communities to Good Food, while also implementing best practices to keep you and your customers, our food supply, and our staff safe. Please read our response statement:
Local food systems literally and figuratively feed communities—they drive economies, create connections, provide nourishment, and employ countless people, from farm laborers to dishwashers. Now, more than ever, it is critical to support small farmers, the backbone of so many small businesses and so much in our community.
In addition to continuing our delivery services, 4P Foods is also mobilizing an extensive coalition of regional partners to make sure that you, your neighbors, kids who rely on school meals, older adults, people who are home-bound, and everyone in need is able to access food – good, nourishing food, and plenty of it – while schools and institutions are closed to slow the spread of coronavirus. We are activating schools, food banks, kitchens, delivery vehicles, and more to mobilize the supply chain that will get food to people who need it in the immediate term and beyond.
Soon we will share news of the greater regional response plan. In the meantime, let’s keep caring for ourselves, each other, and eating our veggies!
Peas & love,
Tom and the 4P Family
