Rebuilding A Regenerative And Equitable Food System
Each day, our work at 4P Foods gets us closer to the kind of food system farmers thrive in, soil is regeneratively cared for, animals are treated humanely, and all communities have equitable access to healthy food.
Our Sourcing Standards
4P Foods sources fresh, high-quality, delicious food, prioritizing local and regional partners. We cultivate a network of growers and producers who engage in labor practices that enable people and communities to thrive, and in growing practices that actively build the soil and promote biodiversity. We source Good Food in service of creating a better food system that is equitable and regenerative, and in which all living beings are treated with respect and dignity.
4P Foods delivers food from small and mid-sized family farmers and artisans
We help our local and regional farmers thrive by providing access to new markets, customers, and communities and work to ensure all people get equitable access to the food they need.
Every 4P Foods delivery supports a sustainable farm-to-table model that connects:
- Local farmers
- the environment
- the economy
- the community
- you and your family
We believe in a world where Good Food is the norm—not the exception.
At 4P Foods, Good Food is defined as food that:
- Provides nourishment and enables people and communities to be their best self.
- Is equitably accessible to everyone in our region, regardless of income, race, or zip code.
- Is produced in a manner that is sustainable and regenerative for our environment.
- Comes from a supply chain in which every being is treated with respect and dignity.
- Improves health outcomes and economic security for all.
Through strategic partnerships with food access and community organizations, 4P Foods is building a better food system that enables all people, regardless of income or ZIP code, to have equitable access to healthy foods.
