We are happy to partner with this wonderful local charity for the last two years in promoting and contributing to their “CHiPS Night Out”, in which local restaurants donate a portion of their revenue to CHiPS. In addition, Peter is honored to have recently been elected as a Board Member of CHiPS. He, Chris, and the Runner & Stone staff look forward to helping further CHiPS’ mission of feeding the less fortunate daily and providing housing to single mothers in need.
Peter and the Runner & Stone bakers have been baking with regional grains since we started selling bread at markets in 2012. Since then, Runner & Stone has been happy to bake for various Regional Grain Project events throughout the year, including the Northeast Organic Farming Association, and the Maine Kneading Conference. We have participated in various studies evaluating the marketability and sustainability of using local grains in commercial bakeries and continue to work closely with GrownNYC to innovate on how to support the regional grain economy though bread and pasta production at Runner & Stone.
We were honored to receive the Slow Food Snail of Approval for our contributions to the quality, authenticity and sustainability of the food supply of the City of New York. We've also been the host of SlowFood NYC's bi-monthly Happy Hour, the Slur, and provided the food for the recent SlowFood Triathlon - Run, Yoga, Eat!
Local Businesses & Schools
Runner & Stone is proud to provide local businesses in Brooklyn and Manhattan with hand-crafted food for their patrons. Our participation in fundraising events has been a true highlight for us since opening and a wonderful way for our staff to get involved in the community while coming together as a force bigger than Runner & Stone.

Not only do we pride ourselves on our responsible sourcing, but we rely heavily on our farmers, millers and purveyors for the inspiration for our seasonal menus. Here are a few of our local "partners" for fresh local produce, dairy products, and meats.
