Woodlawn Community Cooperative
The Woodlawn Community Co-op brings people together around food, service to neighbor and sustaining families.
We run two co-ops with 25 households each. Twice a month, the members of the co-op come together to do the work of unloading, unpacking, sorting and distributing food according to household size. We serve each other, then have a brief community meeting and worship time.
Instead of paying for membership in the co-op, each member has a task or responsibility. Serving in this way counts for community service required by SNAP. Members also make friendships and relationships with their neighbors that serve as another level of support and encouragement.
Requirements to be in the WCC are
* Residency in the 35212 zip code
* Eligibility according to The Emergency Food Assistance Program
* Transportation to and from co-op meetings
Currently both co-ops are filled. If you would like to inquire about getting on the waiting list, please call Valencia King at the church office, 205-595-3776.
Worship at Fair Haven
Every fourth Sunday our congregation leads worship at Fair Haven Methodist Home for the Aging. At 6:00 p.m. in the chapel we gather with residents to sing, pray and hear from the Word of God.
