Support Our Community Equity Fund
Putting Membership and Healthful Foods in Reach for our whole community
The South Philly Food Co-op believes that good food should be accessible to all, and that member-ownership should be available to anyone committed to supporting the Co-op. Our Community Equity Fund is designed to give everyone, regardless of economic situation, an opportunity to become a member-owner, participate in the governance of the Co-op, and access fresh, healthful foods.
The Community Equity Fund supports a scholarship program that offsets the cost of member-ownership for community members on a limited income. Anyone who is interested in joining the co-op that feels that the $200 equity investment is beyond their means may apply for a subsidy to pay for up to $175 of their membership.
Your contribution to the Community Equity Fund (CEF) will help put member-ownership in reach for someone who would otherwise be unable to join while building equity in the co-op and creating a more equitable community. In addition to providing membership subsidies, funds raised for the CEF may also be used for other types of innovative programming designed to bridge access to healthful foods for those in our community with a limited food budget.
