The South Philly Food Co-op is a community of 916 South Philadelphia member-owner households (and counting!) working together to open a grocery store that uses food as a force for good. The store will be located at 2031 S. Juniper St., steps from three commercial corridors — Passyunk Avenue, Snyder Avenue and Broad Street — and just one block from SEPTA’s Broad Street Line. The Co-op is in the midst of a Capital Campaign to raise $1 million in order to open, stock and staff the store. You can help by becoming a member-owner or making a member loan pledge.
