Join Marianna Cacciatore this week as she interviews Chad Hale, a minister who discovered an innovative way to feed people in need that preserves their dignity and honors their talents and gifts.
Bridging racial, social and political divides, Hale joined with longtime community members to launch the Georgia Avenue Food Cooperative in Atlanta, GA. Not a food pantry or charity, everyone at the cooperative has a role to play in acquiring, unloading, sorting and distributing the food, thus empowering people in need to help themselves. The cooperatives have now grown to five, with 50 families each, serving 250 families. The project, which is drawing nationwide attention, now trains others to form community-led food cooperatives.
Tune in and be inspired by this “ordinary” person following his heart on its extraordinary path.
