The Unitarian Universalist Church will host the DeKalb area community for a sensational morning meal. Breakfast will take place from nine to eleven on Saturday, December 15th 2012. They would like to welcome you, your friends, and your family to join us at the Church, located at 158 N 4th St DeKalb Illinois 60115. Breakfast will be provided on a free-will donation basis.
The Welcome Café is a new nonprofit endeavor dedicated to providing food with dignity. This prepared breakfast is full of heart, warmth and sincerity. The cold winter days are slowly approaching so come into the warmth of the church and enjoy a delectable breakfast made by the Welcome Café and Community Kitchen volunteers. There will also be live music provided by local musicians.
Welcome Café and Community Kitchen offers more than just a morning meal; a helping hand for the unemployed and under-employed will also be available. This month’s seminar offers the community a chance to work with the Illinois Work Net Center. Saturday’s seminar will provide information on filling out job applications, general equivalency degree, English as a second language, and coursework available at Kishwaukee College. Computers will also be available for job searches and resume work.
This will be the second breakfast provided by the Welcome Café. The Welcome Café is also working toward establishing a community incubator kitchen. The community kitchen would provide area residents, food growers, and entrepreneurs a licensed commercial kitchen incubator in DeKalb where they can process and package their crops and value added products while receiving business supportive services.
“There is a real need for a community commercial kitchen in DeKalb County,” said Terri Mann-Lamb, a local caterer and an adjunct in the NIU Nutrition Department, “ for many small start-up businesses who would benefit from such a kitchen, such as caterers, personal chefs, bakers, cake decorators and producers of specialty food items such as salsa and candies.”
This community event is a joint effort with students from Northern Illinois University who will provide a helping hand. Organizations such as: the NIU Chapter of Bread for the World, Alpha Phi Omega, and the Student Health Organization are all coming together to contribute to the meal and day.
Breakfast is linked to many health benefits and improved performances. The breakfast provided by Welcome Café & Community Kitchen will give you energy and warmth during this holiday season. Everyone is welcome. For more information contact Dan Kenney 815-793-0950.
