Many of us have been taught that "breakfast is the most important meal of the day." A good breakfast becomes an even better breakfast when it is eaten amidst good friends. Five days a week GAC colleagues work together to plan and make our breakfast. By 8:45 a.m. our dining room is filled with colleagues--members and staff-- eating a healthy breakfast, making plans for the day and exchanging news.
While GAC has always served breakfast, pandemic conditions (which have led to our heightened sense of community), combined with our growing awareness that so many GAC colleagues live in Milwaukee's food deserts has created a now permanent feature of our community life: the GAC breakfast.
We begin each work day with a very nutritious, Clubhouse-cooked breakfast. We intend to sustain this tradition for the foreseeable future.
The GAC Breakfast is possible because of the generosity of some very dear friends in the community.
A big thank you to the Woman's Club of Wisconsin Foundation for a generous grant that covers our breakfast expenses.
We are also grateful to Tikkun ha-Ir's Chop Shop program for their contributions of skillfully cut fruits and vegetables. Chop Shop trains previously incarcerated women so that they will be be able earn a certificate in culinary skills at MATC.
May all your breakfasts be nutritional and may you get to break bread (and eggs!) with your friends as pandemic conditions recede.
