Our Mission

To partner with our members and supporters in creating food security, building community, and providing a platform for personal development while affirming dignity.


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.
