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.
The service now operates from 7am to 9am, every Saturday and Sunday morning from a temporary location near Morrisons in Piccadilly Garden. 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 5,000-6,000 breakfasts a year.
