Amherst breakfast program begins

Wednesday, July 23, 2014
AMHERST — A weekly breakfast program that developed from a partnership between the operator of the town’s homeless shelter and the Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst begins Wednesday.

The breakfast will run each Wednesday from 8 to 10 a.m. at the 121 North Pleasant St. meetinghouse. The breakfast is free and open to the public.

Kevin Noonan, executive director of Craig’s Doors: A Home Association, said in an email that the breakfast is an important community meal, especially for the homeless and low-income residents.

“Their willingness to host this breakfast on Wednesdays will be an important addition for people in our community who have limited resources,” Noonan said.

Rev. Alison Wohler said in a statement that the breakfast is one benefit of renovating and expanding the building.

“These Wednesday breakfasts will be exactly the kind of service to the community the congregation was foreseeing when it chose to remain in downtown Amherst and expand the meetinghouse,” Wohler said.

Breakfast will be served in the Willie Eaton Social Hall.

Noonan said additional services offered from the site in the future.
