Talking Philabundance with Glenn Bergman

News Source: The Philadelphia Inquirer

By Rick Nichols

You might consider Glenn Bergman, 63, something of the Zelig of Philadelphia’s food scene. There he was in the ’80s, humping desserts for a Frog Commissary-catered party. Then grilling stuffed veal loin at La Terasse. Then running a corporate dining unit. By 2004, he was leading the fourfold growth of Mount Airy’s (and later Chestnut Hill’s) Weaver’s Way Co-op from funky grocer to spiffy organics purveyor to urban farmer.

Next month, he’ll put on a new hat – top manager of Philabundance, the city’s enduring antihunger organization. He owes it, he’s quick to say, a deep debt of gratitude. Read the full Q&A here.
