Eat REAL is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit dedicated to fighting diet-related disease by working to transform the food system to better align with consumer health interests.
The Town Kitchen is working to create a better food system for all, and that includes farm animals too. We are committed to sourcing all of our eggs and butter from laying hen and dairy farms that achieve an animal welfare certification recognized by EatREAL and the ASPCA® Shop With Your Heart program by 2021.
We are pleased to report that we have achieved our goal for sourcing 100% cage-free Certified Humane eggs and are working towards our butter goal as more certified supply becomes available. Furthermore, we are excited to use our purchasing power to improve the lives of more animals by buying higher welfare pork and beef. As such, by 2022 we are also committed to sourcing 100% of our pork and beef from farms and ranches that achieve an animal welfare certification recognized by EatREAL and the ASPCA® Shop With Your Heart program.
