Serve our neighbors in need with a hot breakfast and warm hospitality.


The full calendar for this volunteer event is set each Fall with our partner churches and organizations. Due to this, individuals are not able to volunteer unless otherwise confirmed with a group. There is always a chance that a group is unable to fulfill their commitment and we welcome new groups every year…so please do inquire!

MLM has two breakfasts that take place each week:

  • Missouri Breakfast at True Light, 719 E. 31st Street, Kansas City, MO
  • Kansas Breakfast at St. Luke’s Lutheran 722 Reynolds Avenue, Kansas City, KS

MLM partners with True Light Church of the Nazarene and St. Luke’s Lutheran Church to provide free and unlimited breakfast on Saturday mornings in midtown Kansas City, Missouri and northeast Kansas City, Kansas; locations where a quarter to a third of families live with incomes below $15,000. These breakfasts are staffed by 10 volunteers from area congregations and organizations who cook and serve the breakfast and provide hospitality to the guests that come to eat.

This is a favorite among volunteers! The ideal number of volunteers is eight people to serve (6:45 am arrival time) and two people to cook (6 am arrival time). If on the Missouri side, only one cook is needed. This volunteer opportunity books up very quickly, and the full year’s calendar is made available early Fall. Please inquire regarding openings!

Typical breakfast volunteer schedule:
6:45 am  -  Set up for breakfast
7:30 am  -  Devotion
7:30 to 9:00 am  -  Your crew will serve breakfast
9:00 to 10:00 am  -  Close down and clean up - you should be finished and out the door by 10 am.
