Food Co-op's in Philadelphia

By November 30, 2012

The Weavers Way model is being used by many other Co-operative hopefuls to get food Co-op going in their Neighborhoods. I recently bought a home in Kensington, a neighborhood once known only for being a Heroin hub but has been making great strides of late. Some of my peers are leading the charge to bring a Co-op here. They are looking for early member and asking for donations. Though I don't have money to blow, I think this is such an important part of a community and is a great way to invest in the Neighborhood. If I ever have children here I want them to one day fondly remember the Co-op. Mt. Airy has one, so does West Philly, South Philly is working hard on it and hopefully Kensington will have one soon.
