For families in the Brooklyn area looking for a grocery delivery alternative, Pepper Pantry is a new online ordering platform where consumers can purchase essential food and home supplies from local farms and specialty wholesalers in the Greater New York area who are struggling to stay afloat during the outbreak of COVID-19.

These businesses typically only sell in bulk to restaurants, but because of all the temporary closures across the country, are facing significant financial losses and sitting on warehouses full of fresh ingredients with no one to sell to. Pepper Pantry helps these food suppliers easily shift their business from direct-to-restaurant to direct-to-consumer and offers consumers the opportunity to access the same farm-fresh, locally sourced ingredients used by the top restaurants across the Northeast (Eleven Madison Park, Le Bernardin, Sarabeth’s, ABC Kitchen, Tao, Buddakan, and Decoy, to name a few).

Consumers can shop for everything from organic produce to specialty seafood & meat to premium dairy, homemade breads, canned goods, cleaning supplies, and more. To place an order, simply visit the site and input your delivery address to pull up a list of all the suppliers in your area that can deliver to you. Free, next-day deliveries are available and you can get $5 off your first order by entering the code BROOKLYNBRIDGE5 at checkout.

The company hopes to expand its service in the coming months, continuing to provide a convenient way for friends, families, and neighbors to buy what they need from home, while also helping family-owned businesses in our communities adapt to stay in motion.
