Beginning July 14, 2023 at 11am, the first 50 customers will receive a free tasty hoagie! Not only is free lunch a great incentive but also customers will get to learn more about the path to home ownership and stability.
A Community Need
Home ownership holds significant importance for Black people in Philadelphia as it provides a pathway to economic empowerment, stability, and community development. Historically, Black communities have faced systemic barriers to accessing affordable housing and equitable opportunities for wealth accumulation.
By owning a home, Black individuals and families can build generational wealth, establish roots in their neighborhoods, and contribute to the overall growth and revitalization of their communities. Homeownership also offers a sense of pride, security, and control over one’s living environment, fostering a sense of belonging and empowerment.
Moreover, it allows Black residents to have a voice in decision-making processes that shape their neighborhoods, ensuring their needs and interests are represented.
Overall, home ownership plays a crucial role in addressing racial disparities, promoting social equity, and fostering a sense of belonging for Black people in Philadelphia.
Support Black Business
Vito’s Hoagies is a family-owned Black business that has been serving up delicious hoagies and lunch staples for two years. Located in the Grays Ferry section of the city, Vito’s Hoagies cares about the community and the growth of its customers.
