FEEDING OUR COMMUNITY

Mount Airy Philadelphia and the Surrounding Area

At Mount Airy Groceries, we believe everyone should have access to nutritious, fresh, and affordable food. Our goal is to combat food insecurity by getting healthy food to those who need it most.

 

We're raising funds, promoting initiatives, and taking action with urgency to increase public awareness. Buy a fresh food box and support our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of others.

 

Mount Airy Groceries is an organization of neighbors that empowers you not only to eat well but to make sure that your neighbors do too. We proudly provide nutritious produce boxes to the pantries of Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network.  Your purchases and donations support hungry families in your community.  Every box of produce you buy provides another donated box for someone in need.

Discover fresh food to nourish your mind, body, and spirit. Learn how to partner with us today to help your neighbors eat as well as you do. 

NEIGHBORS FEEDING NEIGHBORS

We are neighbors who created this food program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to help our neighbors.  This is a grassroots effort, so please be patient while we adjust to changing circumstances and learn how to serve you better.

 

As we are still working on our systems, we are currently able to fill 50 orders per fulfillment day.  We now fill orders every Tuesday and Saturday and we will feature special items throughout the week according to volume.  We will add days as demand increases.  Currently, our system can only count down to the next available fulfillment day.  Make sure you write down the date posted on the order button.

 

The fulfillment day for your order will be clearly stated before you place an order.  You will receive an email with the fulfillment date and instructions to pick up your order between 3 and 6 or expect delivery between 4 and 7.  You will receive an email the day we fill your order letting you know that your order was filled.  We do not have the capacity yet to take orders for alternative dates through the website. You may email us at mountairygroceries@gmail.com or call 215-805-8796 if you want a different fulfillment date and we will let you know if we can accommodate you.

We provide produce boxes at low cost or for free for those who need them.  We work with Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network and under the auspices of certified food safety growers and food security advocates Dimka Braswell and Bryce Rowe. We provide fresh food to the people they serve.   Your purchases and donations to Mount Airy Groceries ensure that we can continue to do that. Although we are working with non-profits, we are not an official non-profit because government offices are closed.  For this reason, we cannot provide receipts for deductible donations. 

Mount Airy CDC has kindly offered their storefront as a fulfillment center for us.  Their generosity allows us to continue to operate and bring you food at a low cost. Please support the Mount Airy CDC's efforts to sustain our neighborhood.
