"Our lunchtime radical hospitality is made complete through our partnership with Carversville Farm, who allows us to fully realize our aim for dignity, respect, and community at our tables centered on lovingly grown and prepared certified organic ingredients from their incredible farm."
Broad Street Ministry
“Carversville Farm Foundation is a critical partner in our work. The exceptional organic food that they donate enables us to provide nutritious, hot meals to individuals in Camden who can’t afford to make ends meet. The thousands of pounds of food that Carversville donates to CK each year enables our guests to have enough to eat and to not have to choose between paying for housing and feeding themselves and their families. Carversville Farm Foundation’s generosity saves Cathedral Kitchen about $250,000 per year in food costs that we can dedicate to supporting other areas of our operation, such as providing training and social services.”
“Our partnership with Carversville Farm has been a game changer for our meals. The quality of their produce, eggs and livestock exemplifies the mutuality we strive for at Face to Face. We are so grateful for their support.”
Mary Kay Meeks-Hank,
Face to Face Germantown
“Carversville Farm’s fresh organic vegetables, poultry, beef and eggs are a game-changer in our pursuit of providing dignity and respect. Most of Philly’s homeless, hungry, and hurting rely upon hand-outs and even left-overs, often eaten out of Styrofoam. In our 144-year history, we’ve never had farm-direct-to-kitchen sourcing. We are so excited to get the highest-quality nutrition from the rich, organic soil in Bucks County to the delicious real plates at Philly House, and together address hunger in Philadelphia from root to stem to plate.”
Rev. Jeremy Montgomery,
President & CEO,
"Carversville helps us deepen our impact within our community we serve in North Philly. The free seedlings we receive help us grow drastically more food and continue our mission of striving to bridge the food apartheid through educating, empowering, and understanding what food and land sovereignty mean. From our farm to the homes of the families that surround us, thank you for helping make this possible!"
Philly Urban Creators
“Carversville Farm has been a remarkable blessing to the food security needs in Southeast Philadelphia, their commitment to providing organic produce and proteins to the neighborhood throughout the pandemic has been one the biggest highlights of the past three years. SEAMAAC and the racially diverse communities we serve are deeply indebted to Carversville Farm Foundation.”
