Lorain Cooperative Ministry
Caring for Our Community
With regard to the care of the poor and oppressed of our community, we believe that we can do more together, acting cooperatively, than we can do separately. In this way, we hope to offer our Lord, and those for whom He died, better service and opportunities for sharing in the faith of Jesus Christ.
Lorain Cooperative Ministry has been filling a major need in northern Lorain County since 1983.
The primary mission of the Lorain Cooperative Ministry is to provide food and services to as many people as possible. Currently, nine churches work cooperatively to provide a variety of services throughout the month across northern Lorain County. We strive to do this with the utmost respect for each person, and with as much laughter and fun as possible.
A significant percentage of residents are food insecure due to limited job opportunities, lack of education, generational poverty, addiction and physical, mental, and emotional issues. Guests who never expected to need food assistance have reluctantly come to our programs because access to free food has made the difference between paying essential bills, or slipping farther away from self-sufficiency.
