My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Urban Recipe, Inc., Atlanta, GA, USA
I had the unique opportunity to observe Georgia Avenue Community Ministry operate its Food Co-op. What makes it unique is the Co-op members must be hands-on, all-in. If they do not participate, if they do not give their very best to their assignments, then their benefits are reduced. The Food Co-op is NOT a "hand out"; it IS a "hand up". I observed because I believe this is the best model to help those who are willing to help themselves.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
learning how it works and why it works.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
not make any changes in operations. I would encourage the Georgia Avenue Community Ministry-Food Co-op to endeavor to reproduce itself in the surrounding communities of metropolitan Atlanta.
