With the goal of creating the most sustainable environment for fans and the Philadelphia community, Subaru Park aims to grow good food and waste less. As the first MLS soccer stadium to achieve zero landfill status, our objective is to reduce, reuse, and recycle every piece of trash in the stadium, driving our waste output to the landfill down to zero. Alongside this initiative, we helped create the Garden for Good, the first organic garden at a Philadelphia professional sports stadium that grows fresh fruits and vegetables that are then donated to local Chester communities in need.
As the percentage of households without access to three meals a day grows and the demand for food at donation centers continues to rise, Subaru and the Philadelphia Union are committed to growing love and giving more. Together, we created the “Garden for Good,” a local and organic community garden that lives at Subaru Park. This garden, full of fresh produce, is cared for and maintained by the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society and Subaru employee volunteers. With the goal of providing fresh produce for donation to food banks in Chester and Philadelphia communities, this garden has harvested a total of 3,035 pounds of home-grown and organic food for the community. Over the next year, Subaru and the Union hope to donate over 25,400 servings of organic food and vegetables to Chester and Pennsylvania food banks.
