Our Work

From underfunded schools that scrounge for funds for copy paper to the highest poverty and obesity rates among big cities in the US, Philly faces some dire challenges in confronting education and food injustices. Repair the World: Philadelphia partners with local and community-based organizations like the West Philadelphia Alliance for Children and Broad Street Ministry as it seeks to build a kinder and more equitable city.

  • Rebekkah Scharf

    Repair the World Philadelphia Fellow

  • Rebekkah Scharf

    Repair the World Philadelphia Fellow
    Rebekkah graduated UC Santa Cruz with a degree in Agro-ecology and Sustainable Agriculture. She was inspired to serve as a Repair the World fellow after her internships teaching elementary students science, nutrition, cooking, and gardening in their school garden. She was amazed how much she learned from her students - like medicinal plant uses, Spanish words for the plants and food, and recipes from their families and home countries. Rebekkah believes food has become a privilege, but that everyone has the right to healthy, accessible, affordable, and culturally-accommodating food. When no one’s listening, Rebekkah beat-boxes to mainstream pop-music.
