Philly Foodworks has grown out of a citywide demand for a community food system. This system encompasses farmers, chefs, artisans, entrepreneurs, activists, educators and customers who desire good food. Philly Foodworks is taking local and compassionate food out of a niche market and bringing it to everyone. We run a CSA (farm share program in which customers receive weekly deliveries of produce) and local food distribution system that helps producers secure and build their business, while increasing access of their products to all Philadelphians. CSA members can customize their shares to the degree they desire and are reimbursed when they can not pick up their share. They can also receive their boxes at home through Wash Cycle Laundry’s bicycle delivery system.
A Rochester native, Tim Bennett moved to Philadelphia 15- years ago to attend Temple University. Tim wanted to compost in Philadelphia and so, Bennet Compost was born. Tim started signing up clients and collecting organic material from residences and businesses. Through their own composting operation and partnerships with urban farms, their waste is turned into something valuable: compost. Bennett Compost helps Philadelphians responsibly dispose of their food waste provides compost for Philadelphia’s urban growers.
