file

Villanova Dining Services has partnered with Philly Foodworks, an online market and farm share program, to offer on-campus deliveries to the Villanova community.

Interested community members should set up an account with Philly Foodworks to order items from their online marketplace. If you would like to pick up your orders on-campus, you should select “Villanova University - St. Mary’s” as your pickup location when setting up your account.  Users can control their orders for each week through the online marketplace, ensuring they get exactly what they want for that week. 

  • The marketplace opens Friday mornings for the following week’s delivery. Users looking to pick up on-campus should finalize their order by Tuesdays at 8AM for pickup that week. 
  • The minimum order amount per week is $28. 
  • The Villanova pickup will occur between Wednesdays at 4PM and Fridays at 8pm at Second Storey Market in St. Mary's Hall. Those who do not pick up during that time will have that week’s order donated.
  • Deliveries will be made to campus on Wednesday afternoons. Product quality cannot be guaranteed after the day of delivery.

If you have questions about the Philly Foodworks website, account, or marketplace, please reach out to info@phillyfoodworks.com.

Please note: Philly Foodworks will not deliver to campus during scheduled breaks, including: Fall Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break. It is the responsibility of the user to adjust their orders to reflect those break periods.
