South Philly Food Co-op is a community-owned grocery store 10 years in the making that is opening its doors in a few weeks! New and exciting construction updates are non stop, and it is looking more and more like a grocery store every day. Just this week alone, the walk-in cooler & freezer arrived, refrigeration was set up, lights were added, and the outdoor sign was installed.
The Co-op’s mission is “Using food as a force for good—at our tables, in our community and for our planet”. On SPFC’s shelves you will find food you can trust to be good for your health and our planet, prioritizing fairly-traded and sustainably-produced products free of harmful additives or chemicals. Whenever possible, they buy direct from local farmers and food-makers because they believe in supporting the community.
Now – just before the doors open – is the perfect time to become a Member-Owner of South Philly Food Co-op. When you become a Member-Owner, you will quite literally be an owner of the store along with currently 1357 of your neighbors, a number that is growing by the day! You will be in a very special family who want to advance the mission, support the community, and be part of something bigger.
