South Philly Food Co-op is Accepting Members and is Looking for a Home Thursday, September 22, 2011
The last time we checked in with the South Philly Food Co-op, they were just getting off the ground with a neighborhood community forum and surveys. Now they're incorporated and are hosting various events throughout South Philly to raise awareness and raise funds for the initiative, and trying to get enough members to join in order to select a brick and mortar location. Alison Fritz, President and member of the Operations and Outreach committees, notes, "While some start-up co-ops have gone the route of rallying members around a location, many others have been hurt by that when their original location fell through. We are hoping to rally people around the concept of a co-op and then determine location in a business-savvy way."
