Stone Pier Press is aN environmental publishing house with a food focus. 

We publish solutions-oriented books and news that highlight sound choices we can make around how to grow, eat, and dispose of food. The goal is to promote a healthier alternative to a food production system that is a major source of greenhouse gases, eats up land, erodes topsoil, contaminates water, pollutes low-income neighborhoods, and is deeply cruel to animals.

While our food system is part of the problem, it can be part of the solution, too. So we track down the farmers and gardeners using methods that reverse global warming, save water, and produce more nutritious crops. We highlight creative ways to get fresh, green food to underserved communities. We make it delicious to serve up plant-based meals. We report on ways to solve food waste and the many innovative alternatives to industrialized meat and dairy production, and much more.

We’re a nonprofit based in San Francisco and our team includes News Fellows, a group of talented college students and post-grads who share the good food message and produce our news. To distribute our books, we partner with Chelsea Green Publishing, a company long known and respected for its books on sustainable living. We also regularly team up with a growing list of mission-aligned nonprofits and businesses.

If you'd like to support the move toward a better food system, we'd love to hear from you - as an author, reader, potential partner, or supporter

Our News Fellows

Helping us report on what's going on and get out the word on how to become part of the solution, is our team of News Fellows. They're a big part of what allows our publishing company to push for change and we're grateful for their energy, smarts, and activism. Here’s more information on the program, and how to apply.
