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.

Philly Neighborhood Food Week is an example of how community efforts, committed to Philadelphia, are joining forces to help improve public education. The proceeds from this event will help us continue to our commitment to young people and help them as they navigate the pathway to adulthood. ” – Lisa Nutter, President
