Organization

  • I want seafood but don't want my membership to be automatically renewed

    Fishadelphia has recently introduced a new membership system through which you can sign up for annual, seasonal, or monthly memberships that renew automatically.
  • Update on community rate and sliding scale membership

    We’re changing how our sliding scale rates work a little bit, especially community rate.  

    Why?  

    We crunched some numbers, and have figured out that we’re currently on schedule to run out of money and close in about a year.  So we’re implementing some systems that allow us to continue to offer low-cost seafood and also allow us to move toward greater financial sustainability.  

    How does it work?

    • Limited community-rate memberships.  The number of available community-rate memberships is limited and based on the number of sustainer and supporter memberships.  This inventory is rolling: as more sustainer and supporter memberships come in, more community memberships become available.   

      • Why? The actual cost of each seafood share is between $25 and $35.  Community-rate members pay $12.50/share, which means that each community-rate share costs us between $12 and $22.  This cost is covered by our sustainer ($50/share) and supporter-rate ($37.50/share) memberships. 

    • Community-rate memberships are for members whose income makes them eligible for public assistance.  It used to be that members were eligible for community rate if they were referred by another community-rate member, but this system no longer makes sense for us.  You can read more about our rate tiers here.  

    Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your support!

  • How much does a Week’s share of Fishadelphia fish actually cost?

    The true cost of a Fishadelphia fish. It’s more than just fish, it’s something bigger and people oriented!
  • Introducing Neighbor Share, a Fishadelphia mutual aid program

    Fishadelphia’s Neighbor Share aims to ensure that everyone has access to delicious and healthy seafood. Through the Neighbor Share, we grow our power and resilience as a community.
  • Want to host a cooler?

    How does it work? You commit to hosting a cooler from Sept 2021 through May 2022 (with a short break in Jan) to the best of your ability.
  • “Which rate should I select?”

    If you’re feeling uncertain about whether you should sign up for our Regular, Community, or Neighbor Share rates (as a contributor or recipient), here is a short questionnaire borrowed from an organization called AORTA that can help you determine that.
