On Saturday, April 30, teams of volunteers from the South Philly Food Co-op will be at a couple events to answer questions about the Co-op, hand out brochures, and just get to meet people who may have only had contact with us through email or Facebook. At the LoMo event we will be reprising one of our most fun fund raisers with a bake sale supplied by our many supporters. So if you’re reading this, please stop by one of the two events below (both are GREAT events) and say hi.
We’ll also be administering surveys which are a vital part of the planning process and will be used during for our feasibility study and market analysis.
Below are details about Flavors of the Avenue and the LoMo Spring Market and Community Fair.
