WHAT IS PHILLY NEIGHBORHOOD FOOD WEEK??
Philly Neighborhood Food Week (PNFW) is a city wide dining event, designed to bring exposure to Philadelphia’s popular neighborhoods as premier dinning destinations. Participating restaurants are offering prix-fixed multi-course (3-4) menu options at two different price points: $20 and $30 per person.
On top of that it benefits Philadelphia Academies Inc.
â€œCentral to Philadelphia Academies, Inc.’s approach is cultivating and maintaining a network of caring adults who play a range of volunteer roles in our direct service model that is designed to prepare young people for workplace experiences. Philly Neighborhood Food Week is an example of how community efforts, committed to Philadelphia, are joining forces to help improve public education.
