Breaking Bread, Building Community
A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don’t function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick.
– Brene Brown, Author and Research Professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work
At Kerr Street Mission we are intentional about building community. We recognize that connecting with others regularly, having a sense of belonging and friendships has a profound impact on our health and well being.
Eating together has become an integral part of what we do. Gathering around the table, sharing food, conversation and time together is a wonderful way to connect people and build community.
Each week there are 5 to 6 Community Meals offered. Meals are lovingly provided by volunteers groups. The groups purchase, prepare and serve the meals. All who come have an opportunity to fill-up on a nutritious meal, build relationships and enjoy the company of others.
