Weekend Breakfast

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 Limelight in Stretford. 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.
