Thanksgiving Gratitude for the 4P Community
December 01, 2020
On a day that celebrates good food, family, and gratitude, we want to say thank you— to the hardworking farmers, the resilient food businesses, the tireless food assistance providers, our incredible 4P Family (especially our frontline warehouse and delivery teams), and dedicated customers and supporters like you.
YOUR FOOD DOLLARS AT WORK
Thanks for trusting us with something as special as the food on your table! Every purchase you make from us supports a diverse network of regional family farms and artisan producers while providing nutrient-dense food to some of the many people without access due to the inequities in our food system. So far in 2020, 4P Foods has tripled its purchasing from local, small- and mid-sized farmers to $2.5 million. And, thanks to your generous bag donations, over 3,500 families received healthy, fresh, local food through our partnerships with the National Youth Baseball Academy and other community organizations. In the third quarter alone, your support allowed us to donate nearly 3,000 pounds of food to the Fauquier Community Food Bank. (Photo courtesy of 4P partner, Tallawah Farms).
Your food dollars have a real and measurable impact!
SHARE THE HARVEST THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
Did you know that you can opt to skip or donate your 4P Bag when your next delivery is not needed? Right now, the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy is our featured bag donation partner. Every donated bag makes a contribution to their weekly farmers market turned contactless CSA pickup. In order to keep pace with surging demand, the market needs to distribute 75 bags of produce each week. Your generous donation supports this program and helps one of those 75 families. Learn more through our Virtual Tour at the Nationals Academy. You can also make a direct tax-deductible donation to the program on their website.
