The Breakfast Project started out with one of our volunteers taking bacon sandwiches to the rough sleepers in the days before Sunday trading. Today, it continues to be a popular and important part of Lifeshare’s service to the homeless and disadvantaged people of Manchester , and is summed up perfectly by a Recently Dsicovered Poem.
The service now operates from 7am to 9am, every Saturday and Sunday morning in the Charter St. Mission building on Dantzic St. On an average weekend morning, we will serve 50-60 cooked breakfasts (bacon, sausage, egg, beans and tomatoes), and provide cereal, toast, tea, coffee and biscuits to those in need – all free of charge. That’s around 5000-6000 breakfasts a year.
For more information, please see our answers to frequently asked questions or contact us for other enquiries. If you would like to volunteer for our Breakfast Project, please complete an application form and we will be in touch to arrange your first shift.
This work is kindly supported by donations from the public and the very generous support of local food suppliers.
