embers arrive at their appointed hour, check in with the treasurer and contribute a small programming fee. These funds may be used for fuel or insurance for our delivery truck or for a special need that the co-op members vote to determine. The contribution is another way to create a sense of dignity and ownership. Members then pitch in to unload the truck, set up the distribution room, sort food, or simply visit with other co-op members if they are unable to do the manual labor.
A meeting is then held, which Co-op members convene. The meetings typically include a devotional time, community announcements and at times, speakers from outside organizations, such as the Morehouse School of Medicine or the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation. Then, the boxes of food are distributed and members leave until they gather again in two weeks.
