BREAKFAST PROGRAM AT ST ANDR...

Everday since 1982

Breakfast and Community

The Breakfast at St. Andrew's started with a simple idea -- the desire to help others through tough economic times. Back in 1982, Michigan was among the states hardest hit by a national economic recession. It's unemployment rate was one of the highest in the country.

The community needed help, and a small group of parishioners at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Ann Arbor responded. A handful of volunteers started serving breakfast to anyone who needed it -- about 35 guests three times a week in the parish hall. Soon, they were offering breakfast every day. And we've been doing it ever since -- 365 days a year.

Today, The Breakfast at St. Andrew's serves between 90 and 150 meals daily. More than 400 volunteers, many from outside the church, donate their time on a regular basis. Every morning from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., we welcome guests who come for a hot meal and to pack a sandwich lunch for later in the day. Guests include the young and old. They arrive as individuals or in groups. Some are homeless or struggling with addiction or mental illness, but most are working individuals who are trying to make ends meet in a difficult economy.

Unfortunately, the need for help never goes away. The number of hungry people in our community continues to increase. Even in the best financial climates, many are left behind and need a helping hand. As a non-profit organization, the Breakfast at St. Andrew's is the only program in the Ann Arbor community serving a meal without charge, every day at the same time and place.
