Independent Presbyterian Church has served the needs of the Birmingham community for nearly 30 years through their food pantry program. The ministry has recently grown to fill even more community needs through a food voucher partnership with Woodlawn’s City Meats and Vegetables, a corner store in REV’s Urban Food Project network.
