Every Tuesday and Friday from about 8am to 10:30 am, breakfast is shared, in open air, on the corner of Fairfield and Hawthorne in Eureka. That’s just up the hill from the Serenity Inn.

So far, breakfasts have included coffee, herbal teas, hot 7-grain cereal, maple syrup and sugar, fresh fruit, breakfast potatoes, fresh apple juice and apple sauce, coffee cake, lemonade… All homemade– and mostly organic.

Come check it out. Bring the kids and anyone else. Spread the word. Enjoy the morning in a COMMUNITY BREAKFAST.

Of course, as with everything People Project, there will be no money exchanged for breakfast.

And if you are interested in helping prepare or set up breakfast on Tuesdays and Fridays, or any other mornings, we have coffee makers, hot drink dispensers, bowls, mugs, and other supplies we would be happy to share.

AGAIN! SHAME on the Mission and St. Vinnie’s
