Breakfast 4 Our Friends
Welcome to Breakfast 4 Our Friends, sponsored by Tiny House Community Development, Inc.
Hayes Holderness began a weekly breakfast service in November 2009 to share food, care, and compassion to those experiencing homelessness, calling it Burrito Bikers since initially he rode on a bike to deliver burritos and bottled waters. He and his wife Cherie kept the project going for 8 years, watching it grow into a community project with assistance from many, including families, schools, and churches. The Holdernesses have transitioned ongoing primary responsibility to the great people with Tiny House Community Development (THCD) and THCD renamed the project Breakfast 4 Our Friends.
The project still welcomes volunteers as often as people want to sign up and get involved. The sign up sheet is below.
Breakfast burritos, sausage biscuits, and doughnuts are good food items to bring, along with bottled waters. If you are going to bring food, we suggest bringing 75-100 "main items". Donut World generously donates leftover doughnuts on Friday nights at closing time, but you have to be there at 9:00 pm to pick them up. Take your own crate or boxes to put them in. Try to get there by 8:55 so they don't lock up and start throwing things away at 9:00.
It would be great to have burritos or another "main item", but even just taking doughnuts and water is a way to share camaraderie, care, and compassion.
