Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT)
SATURDAY BREAKFAST with Metro Lutheran Ministries 2017
MLM has two breakfasts that take place each weekend
* Missouri Breakfast at True Light, 719 E. 31st Street, Kansas City, MO
*Kansas Breakfast at St. Luke’s Lutheran 722 Reynolds Avenue, Kansas City, KS
- MLM partners with True Light Church of the Nazarene and St. Luke’s Lutheran Church to provide free and unlimited breakfast on Saturday mornings in midtown Kansas City, Missouri and northeast Kansas City, Kansas; locations where a quarter to a third of families live with incomes below $15,000. These breakfasts are staffed by 10 volunteers from area congregations and organizations who cook and serve the breakfast and provide hospitality to the guests that come to eat.
The ideal number of volunteers is eight people to serve (6:45 am arrival time) and two people to cook (6 am arrival time). If on the Missouri side, only one cook is needed.
Typical breakfast volunteer schedule:
6:45 am - Set up for breakfast
7:30 am - Devotion
7:30 to 9:00 am - Your crew will serve breakfast
9:00 to 10:00 am - Close down and clean up - you should be finished and out the door by 10 am.
Sign up list will be on the Men’s LLL board by kitchen for those interested.
