Volunteer for Breakfast Program
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!
Every Friday morning from 7-7:45am when school is in session,
breakfast is served in the UCC Fellowship Hall.
More volunteers and helpers are always appreciated and we have lots of fun together!
A typical Friday morning begins at 6:30am when 3-4 crew members show up and start getting the kitchen and FH set up for food preparation. The menu is set: pancakes or French toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, ham or sausage and pizza. On the long tile counter in the FH is a wide array of beverages, fresh fruit and bread for toast. Even with adhering to the "commercial kitchen" clean-up and sanitizing standards, all is usually wrapped up by 9am.
Though the early hour is a challenge for some, it is really fun and gratifying to look out and see a bunch of teenagers sitting around talking and enjoying a hot breakfast. Some of those kids can really pack it in! This awesome group knows they are offering a warm, friendly place for kids to show up and enjoy a hot breakfast and to chat with their friends. The hope is that we are reaching students who may not have a nutritious breakfast available to them at their homes.
