Fair Food History: Fair Food was founded in 2001 by Philadelphia entrepreneur, Judy Wicks, to build a sustainable and humane local food economy by spreading the local purchasing practices of her restaurant, White Dog Cafe. White Dog Community Enterprises, the non-profit affiliate of the business, provided an institutional home and services to Fair Food until it spun off as an independent organization in 2009. Fair Food started with the narrow focus of connecting farmers and chefs as a strategy for keeping more farmland in production, and now works with a broad range of buyers, as well as hundreds of producers, from the small-scale diversified farmer to midsize growers who supply colleges, hospitals, and other institutions. Over the past ten years, Fair Food has built demand for local food across all sectors of the food system. Along with our partners in the field, our work has created a paradigm shift in the public’s perception about what we eat by shining a spotlight on the men and women who grow our food. According to The Earthlab Foundation, Philadelphia is ranked fifth on the top ten list of green cities in the United States. These statistics were based on carbon footprints. According to Scarborough Research, Philadelphia is ranked 28th out of the top 79 U.S. cities for organic, local food consumption habits.

Brand Mission Dedicated to bringing locally grown food to the marketplace and to promoting a humane, sustainable agriculture system for the Greater Philadelphia region.

Brand Vision: Connections, connections, connections To continuously build new connections with consumers and providers to drive the demand for local, sustainable food in Philadelphia, and shift the public’s perception of sustainable living. Fair Food started with a narrow focus of connecting farmers with chefs in Philadelphia region. Once connected with Buy Fresh Buy Local, they expanded their vision to connect a broad range of buyers with hundreds of producers. Judy Wicks, founder of Fair Food, sees the future of Fair Food and the Philadelphia Sustainability program as promising. Her efforts and those of the organization, are focused on bringing more sustainable education to local schools and communities, as well as expanding their influence on producers, consumers, and providers within the 150 mile radius of Philadelphia that they are dedicated to providing sustainable connections too.
