FUMC hosts the “Feed My People” Breakfast Program of the non-profit organization Foundation for the Homeless, Inc. (FFH) each Tuesday and Thursday, every week of the year in our Family Life Center.
Guests are served a hot breakfast and have the opportunity to shower. As you can imagine, a lot of water, electricity, plates, cups, napkins, cutlery, and cleaning supplies are used. In addition to hosting all the breakfasts, FUMC buys the food and drink for the breakfast on the 4th Tuesday of each month.
The program’s goals are:
- To give volunteers an opportunity to be God’s hands, ears, and eyes through ministry.
- To let guests experience abundance—in food and love.
- To change hearts and minds about homelessness.
- To be a model for other urban ministries.
FFH helps with some of the costs incurred in hosting the breakfasts, but FUMC provides funding for a significant portion of this vital program. Approximately 250-300 guests are fed each Tuesday and Thursday, and they are always very grateful for the hot meal.
You are invited to help this program by donating funds to help with its operation or by volunteering on 4th Tuesdays. Donations may be left at the altar rail or sent to or brought by the church office.
Come experience this ministry that feeds breakfast to 300 of our homeless guests. If you would like to volunteer, preparing, cooking, and setting up begins at 4:45 a.m.; serving begins at 6:00 a.m.; and clean-up begins at 7:00 a.m. You may arrive and leave to meet your schedule. On-the-job training is available.
