A few of the newer PAX have asked about Breaking Bread and what it is and a few of the older PAX may need a refresher on what it is. The following is a short description of one of F3RVA’s service projects:
Breaking Bread is a program by the Daily Planet and is located at the Medical Respite of Richmond which is located on Belt Blvd in Richmond’s Southside. F3RVA has been signed up for years to serve a hot meal, on every 4th Sunday of the month, to a group of 5 to 20 homeless individuals who are recovering from a stay in the hospital for various reasons. The Medical Respite gives them time to recover in a home-like setting before being released to other housing or, more than likely, back on the streets 🙁
Here is the link to the program: https://dailyplanetva.org/get-involved/breaking-bread/
You can bring anything like pizza, BBQ, Fried Chicken, Lasagna, etc., etc. along with sides, drinks, and desserts. This is a great time to give your time to these more unfortunate people and show them you care. I have taken my 7 year old son with me a couple of times and other PAX have taken their whole families and friends to help. It usually takes about 4 to 5 people to serve this meal and to spend time with them in fellowship and prayer.
Breaking Bread is a great way for you and F3RVA to practice your 2nd and 3rd F’s! Sign up now on the Q sheet! Plus, this is extra credit for the Winter and Summer Tours!
YHC and my 2.0 Husky have signed up for January’s Breaking Bread, but we will need help. Please let me know if you would like to participate.
Thanks and SYITG!
