FOOD MOXIE PROGRAMS
FOOD DISTRIBUTION: Across our programs and sites we support redistribution of fresh produce back into the community; where the food goes is determined by our program partners, participants, and staff in partnership with other mutual aid organizations
FOOD MOXIE is the largest and most innovative organization directly addressing the intersecting issues of poverty, food access and education, and building healthy communities in Northwest Philadelphia. Founded in 2007 by Weavers Way Co-op, we connect people to the earth and their food, as well as to themselves and one another, through partnerships with schools and place-based organizations.
