The Anchorage Breakfast Program, located at First United Methodist Church (FUMC), serves free breakfast to over 120 people a day every Monday through Friday, 52 weeks per year to Lancaster’s low income, unsheltered, and socially-excluded populations, and to any and all who are hungry.  Breakfast is served from 8:30-9:45 a.m. each day with a regular menu of juice, milk, cereal, eggs, toast, a hot beverage, and fruit.

The Anchorage program transitioned from Saint James Episcopal Church to First United Methodist on August 1st, 2016. In the first year that FUMC hosted Anchorage, from Aug 1st, 2016 – July 31st 2017, Anchorage served 33,603 breakfasts, or an average of 129 people a day.

History

After a 30-year residency at St. James Episcopal Church in Lancaster, Anchorage Breakfast (formerly known as the “Breakfast Club”) moved to First United Methodist Church on August 1, 2016. Now in operation for over a year, Anchorage Breakfast serves an average of 120 meals each day. Our mission is to become a ministry of our entire community, connecting with other churches, synagogues, religious organizations, social service agencies, and the business community alike.

Each day breakfast is served from 8:30-9:45am with a regular menu of hot beverages, juice, milk, cereal, and toast. Often times community members offer special recipes and meals for our guests who are more than grateful for the variety they receive here at Anchorage. Our trained volunteers serve to Lancaster’s low-income, unsheltered, and socially-excluded populations.
