The Crafting Community Project launched in South Philadelphia in August 2019. Interfaith Philadelphia engaged over 25 new and existing partners from local organizations, civics, and congregations. We hosted listening sessions, meetings, and presentations, eventually working with partners to create, promote, and collect roughly 120 community feedback surveys. Through these listening sessions and surveys, the community identified the diversity of food and culture as major assets of South Philadelphia, and wanted to celebrate these strengths through a community cookbook.
We are proud to announce the cookbook is complete! You can order yours here!
What’s in the cookbook?
Over 20 recipes from South Philadelphia community members:
