We wish to thank The Reading Terminal Market, GPTMC & Philly Homegrown, and University of the Arts Musicians along with the many food producers and purveyors who are donating their time and talents.

Snail of Approval is a work in progress and is in no way the ultimate food guide. There are many places that deserve our recognition, but we hope to keep it organic, manageable, and concise. This program has been used by other chapters in the country to endorse specific food related businesses that we feel confident in listing on our website for you to make good choices.
