The Food Trust's 25th anniversary save the date

Join us as we celebrate 25 years! 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of our work to increase the availability and affordability of fresh, healthy food. On Friday, December 1, from 7 to 10 pm, we’ll go “back to our roots” as we host The Food Trust’s 25th Anniversary Celebration at Reading Terminal Market, where we got our start 25 years ago.

This ticketed event will feature:

  • Food from a curated group of Reading Terminal Market vendors
  • Music and live performances from some of Philly’s best acts
  • Exclusive food-related experiences for attendees
  • Interactive activities for the entire family


The Food Trust began in a small room at Reading Terminal Market in 1992, when founder Duane Perry noticed that some city residents traveled miles to the market because they lacked fresh produce in their own neighborhoods.

In the 25 years since, The Food Trust has grown significantly. From small farm stands, the organization went on to work with farmers markets, corner stores, supermarkets and mobile food vendors. From market field trips, its nutrition education program expanded into schools and community centers, reaching everyone from infants to seniors. And from Philadelphia, the organization’s efforts have reached across the United States and beyond.


Tickets go on sale October 1.


Proceeds from this special event will enable The Food Trust to continue providing healthy food and nutrition education to low-income children and families in Philadelphia and beyond.
