Good News Breakfast
The Good News Breakfast is an outreach ministry of Central Care Mission, and an opportunity for community volunteers to make a difference to the homeless and at-risk of downtown Orlando.
Every Sunday morning at First Presbyterian Church on Jackson Street, 52 weeks per year, volunteers gather to serve coffee, oatmeal, eggs, pancakes, sliced potatoes, sausages, and toast to 150+ homeless men and women, most of whom will have slept outside the night before. It is a powerful experience for all who volunteer, who often get to know regular attendees on a personal level.
