Agape Co-Op

The Agape Cooperative is a group of families and individuals from the West Side and beyond, who have committed to a deeper degree of engagement around food. Quarterly meetings and potlucks create community among the group, and volunteering is encouraged– we can use any skill! Participants pay a small membership fee and biweekly “market” fee, which is far outweighed by the value of food and products they receive.


Membership in the Agape Co-op is meant for people who meet the following criteria:

  1. Must be a resident of the West Side OR participate in one of The Other Way’s programs

  2. Have an income that is 200% of the poverty line or below.


With questions about the co-op and to request a membership application, call or email Bethany Joseph at 616.454.4011 ext. 5227 or
