Philly Stake is currently (as of 2015) on hiatus. If you'd like to stay in the loop regarding future events, happenings, and developments, please join our mailing list!

Philly Stake is a recurring event celebrating locally sourced food and creative community projects; organized completely by volunteers. We hold events approximately every 3-4 months.

Stake dinners are seasonal meals sourced from local farms and purveyors. At each dinner, project proposals are presented to the diners. Community members pay a sliding scale ($10-$20) donation for dinner and an opportunity to vote for the project they deem most worthy for the funding. These projects aim to contribute to the vitality of Philadelphia in a multitude of innovative ways. Awardees will leave with the dinner proceeds and will present their project at the next meal.

Since September 2010 we have distributed $15,350 to 21 projects.

Join our mailing list to receive information on the event and our call for project proposals.
