Urban Recipe

Originally serving as the Georgia Avenue Community Ministry, Urban Recipe is an outgrowth of a 1990 initiative of Georgia Avenue Church. It was separately incorporated in 2001, the primary focus being the formation of food cooperatives for low-income families. Our particular “urban recipe” creates food security in a way that affirms dignity while at the same time providing a sense of support and community for our members. Today, Urban Recipe operates out of a 20,000 square foot warehouse with a few offices on a second floor. The site is located near the Beltline and shares space with 4 other organizations working in the food space.

Site Work

Mon – Wed, 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; with some additional activities outside of these hours.

Site work will be in person.

Covid vaccine required.

Students will be involved in a range of activities helping Urban Recipe to create food security, build community, and support personal development for Urban Recipe food cooperative members. Weekly site work will include helping to pack boxes for food distribution around the metro area, engaging volunteers, and building relationships with a particular food coop and its members over the course of the year.
