Kensington Community Food Co-op

There are 571 of our neighbors who have become member-owners of Kensington Community Food Co-op (some of them include you!) and that number is increasing weekly.

One of the benefits of being a member-owner is getting great discounts at over 40 shops, cafes, and other services throughout the community through the ShopLocal program. Another unique membership benefit is being able to invest further in this local business and your community by making a loan to assist in opening a member-owned grocery store in your neighborhood.

If you would like to become a member-owner, go to www.kcfc.coop or email email info@kcfc.coop for more information. If you are interested in volunteering with KCFC, email Holly Logan at holly@kcfc.coop.

Olde Rich­mond Civic As­so­ci­ation has a new board and big plans for the neigh­bor­hood.

On Tues­day, Sept. 9, the group held a “Meet the Neigh­bors” event at Mem­ph­is Tap on Mem­ph­is and E. Cum­ber­land streets in an at­tempt to in­crease com­munity en­gage­ment with the group and dis­cuss some of its forth­com­ing ini­ti­at­ives. About a dozen mem­bers con­vened for drinks and con­ver­sa­tion about the fu­ture of the area bordered by the Delaware River to the east, Trenton Av­en­ue to the west, the Con­rail Rail­road lines near Le­high Av­en­ue to the north and E. York Street to the south.
