M:STL Beacon of Light Ministries Development VISTA
Beacon of Light ministries initiated the United People Community Organization Project to empower low-income individuals in north St. Louis County, where the poverty rate is 38%, to revitalize and improve their neighborhoods into thriving and vibrant communities. We are building a sustainable community-owned healthy food cooperative. By increasing nutrition, cooking, and gardening literacy and employment skills, individuals within these communities will learn how to maintain healthy family practices, gain cooperative community development skills, and become leaders in their communities.
