Friends, As we approach the end of 2012, we are offering you an opportunity to support the South Philly Food Co-op in a whole new way! Now, thanks to our partnership with fiscal sponsor Fair Food Philly, you can help the Co-op achieve its goal of opening a community-owned grocery store with a tax-deductible, charitable gift. As you consider your year-end giving, we hope you will include a donation to the South Philly Food Co-op. With more than 320 member-owners, the South Philly Food Co-op is quickly becoming a neighborhood establishment, and we haven’t even opened the store yet! It’s so exciting to watch people connect at events like Co-op Brew Day and the Soup Swap. Says one Brew Day attendee who recently relocated to Philadelphia, “It sounded like the kind of event I could go to on my own, have fun, and meet some cool people — and it was different from all of the other holiday events.” By the end of the night, she told us she had a great time, made some new friends and was now considering a move to South Philly. Talk about building community! So join us in continuing to grow one of the most exciting projects in South Philly by making a donation to the Co-op today! (If you give before December 31st, you can count the tax benefit for 2012.) Your donation will go toward outreach, events and Co-op education, keeping our community connected and growing the Co-op’s local impact. We’ve set a goal of $2,000 for this end-of-year giving campaign, and we’ll get there with your contribution of $10, $25 or even $50. Making a donation couldn’t be easier. Just visit to make a secure online donation or write a check, made payable to our fiscal sponsor Fair Food Philly, and mail it to us at: South Philly Food Co-op, P.O. Box 31506, Philadelphia PA 19147. In addition to being a member, attending our events, volunteering or offering discounts at your business as part of Shop South Philly, supporting the Co-op with a charitable gift furthers your investment in an enterprise owned and controlled by a pretty awesome group of South Philadelphians! As always, get all the latest information on what’s going on at We hope to see you at a Co-op event soon! Best wishes for a warm and happy holiday season, Alison Fritz, Board President Maria Camoratto, Board Vice President
