The South Philly Food Co-op is a community of South Philadelphia residents who are working together to open a grocery store that uses food as a force for good. Our store will be at 2031 S. Juniper Street, steps from three commercial corridors—Passyunk Avenue, Snyder Avenue, and Broad Street—and just one block from the Broad Street Line. 

Our goal is to open next year, and there are many ways that you can help make the store a reality.

1. Join the South Philly Food Co-op

As a member-owner, you play a key role in building the Co-op community and changing the local food landscape. To capitalize the Co-op and transform this empty space into a fully stocked grocery store, we need to raise $1 million—and our member-owners are key to that success.

Member-owners receive perks such as discounts in the store, and right now, member-owners have exclusive access to discounts and specials at dozens of local businesses through the Shop South Philly program. Moreover, member-owners can help guide the South Philly Food Co-op’s operations through their election of the Board of Directors.

By becoming a member-owner, you will quite literally be an owner of the business. If you are already a member-owner, but have not paid in full, you can also help by completing your equity payments. Email membership@southphillyfoodcoop.org with questions.

2. Make an investment (coming soon!)

In addition to your membership, you can deepen your investment in the Co-op through donations, additional equity contributions, or by making a member loan. We will have more information on opportunities to invest in the Co-op very soon. If you'd like to let us know you are interested, you can email general@southphillyfoodcoop.org.

3. Volunteer

The Co-op could not exist without our member-owners, and that includes the generous contribution of your time! We are looking for volunteers to support our communications, membership drive, and fundraising. Sign up to volunteer to learn more.
