By Carolyn Huckabay, Board of Directors, South Philly Food Co-op
The South Philly Food Co-op is as busy as ever this summer, from ushering in new board members, hosting community events, and building major momentum in their Capital Campaign.
Buckminster Green will begin Phase 2 as soon as the Co-op reaches their Capital Campaign goals, and support from member-owners and the South Philly community at large has never been stronger. As of today, the Co-op has raised nearly $200,000 in member loans, and they’re 919 member-owners strong. With an overall fundraising goal of just over $1 million, there’s still work to do, so they need everyone’s help — dare we say cooperation — to keep up the momentum and bring in the funds needed to break ground!
Next Thursday, August 2, the Co-op will host a happy hour at Pistolas Del Sur, with drink specials and proceeds benefiting the Co-op. Come join the celeberartion and get all your questions answered.
If you’d like to get involved by becoming a member-owner, making a loan, or volunteering, please email general@
