Our Commitment to the Community
Mexico is a magical place, its people warm with culture, its soil rich with nutrients, a formula for communal abundance. The pandemic presented challenges with distribution, where food is being sown but many chains have been broken. This website started as an early effort to feed people during the pandemic. Now we just want to feed people.
We pay producers directly, transform food into goods, and then distribute across the city. When specialty boxes are sold, we send proceeds to community organizations in Oaxaca. Our commitment is to offer well-sourced food and goods at an affordable price and to share the abundance with our neighbors.

Our Community Partners
We build personal relationships with our regional suppliers, hoping to find creative ways to support the system. In addition to our box program, we make food deliveries to places that need it a few times per year. We are also working to establish a long-term seed sharing program with remote farmers. And for those who are doing good work or simply need some joy in an uncertain time, we want to celebrate you. Click here to learn about our monthly Mezcal Experience.
