How it works:
Each week, 4P FOODS in partnership with Local Food Hub brings food curated from their network of farms direct to our employees (see locations above). They provide recipe ideas, stories about their growers and an easy-to-use platform to give members flexibility around their deliveries. Simply sign up at 4PFOODS.com. There is no long-term commitment—you can skip a delivery or cancel at any time. Before each delivery you will receive an e-mail with share contents, source farms, healthy recipes, and food and farm news. 

 
What’s included in each bag?
Your produce bag will consist of locally sourced fruits and vegetables. A summer bag might include heirloom tomatoes, sweet corn, raspberries, bell peppers and cucumbers. Always local. Always seasonal. Small, Medium, and Large shares available. A typical small bag could include: a pint of concord grapes, one butternut squash, two red tomatoes, two juicy peaches, four red medium shallots, a head of broccoli, a head of bibb lettuce, one bunch of mustard greens, two red potatoes, and one bunch of thyme.  Sample share pictured. 

 
Cost: Varies. Produce bags start at $30/delivery.
 
Summer Season delivery starts June 5th! 
  • Deliveries will be on Wednesday afternoons. You’ll receive an email notification when your bag arrives!
  • In order to launch the program, we need at least 25 participants per location, so sign up today!  If your preferred location does not get enough enrollment, you are not required to participate.
  • Too much produce for you? Cost holding you back? It is easy to skip deliveries or donate them to local food bank partners (as long as you give at least 48 hrs in advance) and you only get charged for what you use or donate.
  • Each Saturday, 4P Foods will send out a Weekly Harvest Newsletter straight to your inbox, making it simple to decide whether to order that week’s share or skip. If for some reason you are not receiving the email newsletter, check your spam folder first, then email community@4pfoods.com
