What's Happening in:  All over South Philly 

Learn about the future of the South Philly Food Co-op on May 25

We’ve been following along with the South Philly Food Co-op‘s efforts to start a grocery store since Passyunk Post first began in 2012. That’s a long time, isn’t it? The organization is still working towards finding a location and making this store a reality, and they’re doing better than ever.


We shared with you the results of membership meeting in the fall with some information on the co-op’s plans moving forward. If you want some updated news on the organization, on Wednesday, May 25 the South Philly Food Co-op is hosting a spring membership meeting with plenty of interesting updates on the agenda.

This meeting will go over the results of a product preference survey released in the fall that was completed by more than 160 South Philly residents, including members and non-members. Also expect to hear an update on the organization’s financial situation. The co-op recently won a $5,000 grant from the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance, so they’re doing pretty well.

The meeting will include the board of directors election, which co-op members will be able to vote on. Unable to attend the meeting? Members can fill out an absentee ballot here.

The co-op is also expected to announce a new partnership, which they’re calling “buzzworthy.” In addition to some free treats from that new partnership, if you attend you’ll also be able to enjoy some┬ásweet tamales and heirloom, organic popcorn from Lancaster farmer Tom Culton, in partnership with South Philly Barbacoa.

The meeting is open to members and non-members. It will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25. The event is being hosted at the East Passyunk Community Center at 1025 Mifflin Street. Want to know more? Here’s the Facebook event page.

    Is this a stet-up where I get busted for my unpaid child-support payments??

    Fingers crossed for “we finally realized we’re all idiots that can barely tie our own shoes let alone run a business, here’s your money back”
