How did you get involved with the food co-op?

I met Glenn and Ned from Weavers Way through work and told them that they should open a store in South Philly so I could be a member. They informed me about the South Philly Food Co-Op and told me that the co-op is always looking for help. I met with Cassie and Alison and began getting involved.

Why do you want a food co-op in South Philly?

To have access to better quality food and to help bring the community together.

Why should people join a food co-op?

People should join a food co-op for the reasons I described above. In addition, people should care about what they eat because it effects their health and ultimately their quality of life.

What is your favorite meal to cook and why?

I love to cook period but my signature dish is definitely spicy homefries with onion, peppers and bacon with over easy eggs on top. Yum.
