DESTROY THE EGGS
You may or may not have some pent up anger at this moment so why not take it out on an invasive species?
Friendly neighbor, Rachel, showed us some common places that she's found
the gross Lanternfly eggs (see below). The more nests that are
destroyed during egg laying season, the less lanternflies next year!
Food Co-op is a community-owned grocery store 10 years in the making
that is opening its doors in a few weeks! New and exciting construction
updates are non stop, and it is looking more and more like a grocery
store every day. Just these last few weeks alone, the walk-in cooler
& freezer arrived, refrigeration was set up, lights were added, and
the outdoor sign was installed.
The Co-op's mission is "Using food as a
force for good—at our tables, in our community and for our planet". On
SPFC's shelves you will find food you can trust to be good for your
health and our planet, prioritizing fairly-traded and
sustainably-produced products free of harmful additives or chemicals.
Whenever possible, they buy direct from local farmers and food-makers
because they believe in supporting the community.
Now - just before the doors open - is the perfect time to become a Member-Owner of South Philly Food Co-op. When

Request water bill assistance before shutoffs restart in 2021
The Philadelphia Water Department and PhilaRevenue took the bold step of
extending COVID-19 emergency water-protection measures. That means
residential and commercial water customers won’t be shut off until April
1, 2021 –even in the case non-payments. However, if you’re not paying
your water bill, your balance will continue to grow and become harder to
manage once shutoffs restart. Get ahead of the problem by applying for
water bill help today: www.phila.gov/water-bill-help. A loss of income during the pandemic may qualify you for special assistance.
