Talking Philabundance with Glenn Bergman
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.
