We currently serve 200 + families each month. Families can choose to come into the co-op and select the products that are best for their families. Due to partnerships with local businesses and non-profits, each family receives about 6 bags of groceries, including non-perishables, produce, milk, eggs, frozen meat, bakery products and cleaning and hygiene supplies.
HISTORY OF BurkeGivesBack
Because we are called by our faith to “Love Your Neighbor”, Burke United Methodist Church started holding “Change the World” events in May 2010. As our neighbors became interested in this event, we looked for ways to involve the community in helping to care for others and to learn about the needs both locally and far away. BurkeGivesBack was born in May 2017, and since then we have held May and October community events each year packing thousands of meals and collecting literally tons of food for area food banks. Our Community Co-op is part of these outreach efforts.
