For almost 40 years, West Philadelphia’s Mariposa Food Co-op has provided access to healthy, locally grown, and sustainably produced food. Growing from a buying club of a few dozen members to a full-service storefront open every day of the week, Mariposa now has well over 1,000 shoppers. With skyrocketing growth, and only 500 sq ft of retail space, Mariposa made the decision to expand.
They purchased a big fabulous building at 4824 Baltimore Avenue! Our goal is to begin renovations in June.
What They Need
The purchase, renovation, and start-up costs for the new store is an estimated $2.3 million. The co-op has already raised over $2.2 million between various loans, grants and donations. They’re almost there.
They have set a goal of at least $10,000 of donations from community members and supporters.
Please make a donation to support this campaign – even $5 or $10 will help us reach the goal!
