Healthy & Sustainable Communities

We’re committed to our community and to creating a better world.

We’re always looking for opportunities to help our neighbors, whether by donating to 11 local food banks or awarding grants to organizations that are doing good in their communities. It also means stocking our shelves with ethically sourced items, such as fairly traded chocolate and bananas, and seafood harvested using only ethical labor practices. And it means ensuring our employees receive some of the best wages and benefits in the grocery industry while creating a workplace that welcomes those who share our vision of creating a better world. Whether near or far, we put people first. Because we aren’t just committed to our community — we’re owned by it.

Our Staff

Our dedicated, knowledgeable staff are at the heart of everything we do. That’s why PCC provides highly competitive wages, excellent benefits and a progressive work environment. We pride ourselves on the long tenure of many of our staff, and the fact that so many have chosen to build their careers at PCC.

Fair Labor

We’re committed to being a positive force in the lives of people who work in our supply chain. Our product standards help ensure that common labor abuses are avoided.

Co-op Economy

We are advancing a fair and just economy by supporting other co-ops in our neck of the woods and around the country.

Our food bank program is 25+ years strong and 100% for the benefit of local food banks.
