By partnering with local restaurant providers, we are able to purchase restaurant quality produce at a low cost, and sell it to the consumers for around wholesale prices. This also allows the distributor to purchase from smaller farms, non commodity producers and higher quality products, while our restaurants are still recovering from the loss in business due to the pandemic.
We use as little plastic as possible when packaging our boxes, while still protecting the integrity and freshness of the produce.
Our carbon foot print is much lower than traditional online grocery box programs through use of less plastic, providing pick up locations, buying local, buying produce that may have otherwise gone to waste, donating unsold boxes, stocking community fridges, utilizing shared spaces, and composting/promoting composting to our customers.
Through sustaining sponsors, grants, customer purchases/donations we have been able to donate over 8,000 boxes of food to families in need throughout the Denver Metro area!
Customers can support by purchasing a balanced box, or a dozen eggs that directly goes to a family or individual in need. Anyone can come to our site and request a box, no questions asked. If you are hungry and need help we will get you food. We have the option for recipients to pickup or receive delivery, just like our paid customers.
We are actively fundraising! We are looking for more corporate, sustaining and private sponsors. Please spread the word.
Big shout out to Oatly! Who has been a sustaining sponsor since day 1. We are so grateful for the support.
Albeit slowly, we are confident we can expand our model nationally! We'd love to see LittleJohn Produce grow enough to help other communities outside of Denver.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support! - ALJ & The whole LittleJohn Team
