HOUSE NEWS: Food and Faith, Breakfast Brigade Time Change, Art for All
We are excited to welcome a group of grad students from the religion department at UF this week who will help lead a discussion on “Food and Faith” and Thursday’s round table. It’s a pot luck, so bring something to share if you have time. If not, come anyway.
An important change this week: The Breakfast Brigade is pushing back its start time from 4:15 to 4:45. As work has dried up at the labor pools, there hasn’t been the big crowd there used to be trying to get a head start in line. Most aren’t opening doors till 6am, and we have honed down our process here to the point that it doesn’t take long to get out the door. So, we will be sleeping in an extra half hour on Fridays, which we really don’t mind at all.
Our dining room is becoming beautiful again, decked out with art from the ART FOR ALL PROJECT. Lovely mosaic frames waiting for mirrors to be cut to size, bottle cap necklaces and fridge magnets, and more paper mosaic pieces. We would love to have your help if you’re available on Tuesdays between 1 and 5. If you’re not and would still like to contribute, we’re happy to send supplies home with you to work on one of our various projects. We are aiming for a late April sale with gift items for graduation, Mother’s Day, and Easter. This Tuesday, artist Mary Peer will be helping us make handbags and mouse pads from fabric scraps, but we’ll have alternative projects for children and folks who would like to try their hand at beading or paper crane folding instead.
As always, let us know if you would like to help volunteer at the Cafe on Wednesday, the Coffee Shop on Thursday, or the Breakfast Brigade on Friday!
