Jubilee Breakfast Ministry

Volunteer Sign Up

Please Stop and read this COVID-19 update first:

We are following CDC guidelines to protect the health of the community.

We ask anyone that is interested in volunteering with Jubilee, especially now, please stay home if you feel unwell. You may update or change your volunteer status on the SignUpGenius page as needed. You will get an email confirming your change.

We have adapted our 'Hot and Hearty' Jubilee Breakfast menu to a GrabNGo version:  Scrambled Eggs, meats (pork and non-pork options) , potatoes & cheese. We offer hand fruits as available along with choice of a juice or milk, hot coffee and/or tea.

We have modified our prep, cook and serve model as well in the following ways:

The building is closed to guests; only volunteers are permitted in the building. Volunteers enter by the Church Street (side) door, please push the office buzzer and someone will greet you.

If you are a first-time volunteer, please arrive ~5 mins early to complete our Sign-in sheets.


Although we can provide aprons, caps and hairnets if you do not have your own, you should provide your own cloth mask to wear (as CDC now recommends).

After signing in, all volunteers must wash hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds before donning gloves and beginning tasks.
In addition to our normal sanitary procedures for volunteers, (hand-washing, gloving, hairnets/hats etc), gloves must be worn at all times.
We have reduced the total volunteers needed to 6 per shift. Each person will be given a 'zone' either in the kitchen or fellowship hall to allow for social distancing.

Only our staff coordinator, Craig Smith, distributes bagged breakfasts and beverages to guests at the Maple Street (back) door. 

Clean up following service now includes cleaning all surfaces and 'touch areas' with a 10% bleach solution.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our staff coordinator Craig Smith (908-397-6460), or our volunteer coordinator Nancy Dougherty (610-760-8361)

 

Please scroll down the page to learn more about the Jubilee Breakfast Ministry and select a time to volunteer! NOTE: Volunteers must be 18 or older! 

We provide hot breakfast and warm hospitality to the community on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. to those who are homeless and to the working poor. Most come directly from Allentown's overnight warming shelter. They receive a meal and have a warm place to stay before going to their workplace, or until county agencies and drop-in centers open at 9 a.m. 

Volunteer Opportunities: On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays we need ten volunteers to prepare and serve breakfast from 6:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.  Please note: volunteers for serving breakfast must be at least 18 years of age. 

If you are interesting in bringing a team from your faith community or workplace, please contact our volunteer coordinator: Nancy Dougherty (610-760-8361) or via email: [email protected]

Contributions: Your contributions are very important to our ministry. Your financial contributions enable us to purchase items in bulk at very low prices as well as to pay the cost of utilities and equipment maintenance. Click to contribute via PayPal or Credit Card or mail your check to Zion's UCC, 620 W. Hamilton Street, Allentown, PA 18101 and write "Jubilee" in the memo.

If you would like to donate specific items (for example:  eggs, milk, sausage, ham, bacon, fresh fruit, napkins, sugar, coffee, sweet & low, etc.), please contact the church office (610-435-2412) for information about dropping off your contribution. Please note that the Allentown Health Bureau does not allow us to accept anything made in someone's kitchen at home (including baked goods).

Why Jubilee? This ministry to, with and for those who are homeless is taking place just a few feet from where the Liberty Bell was hidden in our church during the Revolutionary War. The well-known inscription on the bell ("Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land, unto all the inhabitants thereof") from Leviticus 25 proclaims the Jubilee year in which the scales of economic justice are balanced for all people. We pray for that day to come. In the meantime, we work as advocates for those who are in need. And we offer the most basic ministry that Jesus taught us to provide: food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless (Matthew 25).
