Community Equity Fund

South Philly Food Co-op believes that everyone deserves good food. That’s why our Community Equity Fund invites all of our neighbors to become member-owners in ways that match their economic needs. 

The Community Equity Fund makes member-ownership accessible by bringing the minimum equity investment down to just $5 at the time of registration. Member-owners then determine the total amount of equity they can invest and choose a monthly payment plan that works for their budget. Once their pledge has been fulfilled, the Co-op subsidizes the remaining balance of the $300 equity investment (up to $275).

The Co-op does not require income or employment documents to determine Community Equity Fund eligibility.
