How it works
Our West Oakland-based facility aggregates, stores and distributes fruits and vegetables grown by BIPOC farmers.
By souring local, we reduce food miles traveled, eliminate packaging waste and support farmers who use pesticide-free and organic growing practices.
We use both sales income and grants to ensure fair pricing for our farmer network, while securing access to affordable produce for our community.
Why Shop MPD?
Our work is built on authentic relationships with both farmers and customers. Each sale directly supports the infrastructure for a food system that ensure fair wages for BIPOC farmers and access to healthy food for our community.
