How it works . . .

Debit on Delivery: Put no money down and get charged on the day of your delivery.
Pre-pay: Put money on your account and each delivery will be deducted from your account balance. We use the prepayment to provide no interest financing for farmers. When your balance drops below $0, it will automatically charge your account the value of your pre-payment, but you can change your payment increment at any time. We also offer bonus credits for larger prepayments.
We choose our food and farmers based on standards created and valued by our members. These standards do not always fit the various certifications available today but are assessed by the quality of produce, health and safety of the worker, product and environment. For the majority of the year our food is sourced within a 150-mile radius of Philadelphia. During the drought of winter, we source elsewhere, but our high standards of production never change. It never includes GMO. Some grow organically, but uncertified, and some are pursuing Certified Naturally Grown (a less costly alternative to USDA Organic).
The co-founders started Philly Foodworks after struggling to find distribution outlets while they were farming in West-Philadelphia. Many of their fellow farmers were having similar difficulties so they began Philly Foodworks.
Philly Foodworks strives to support local, sustainable producers while bringing good food to the community. They provide farmers with funding upfront and work with community groups to make local food more accessible for all.
