Thanks For Bringing Back Our Breakfast

The usual crowd joined our partner church, Millbrook Baptist, on August 31.

Today Love Wins Ministries shared breakfast with approximately 100 people, many of whom are experiencing homelessness or food insecurity. This is a continuation of a promise we have kept to our community for the last six years.

We and the people we minister among are pleased that the Mayor and City Council have chosen to not enforce the ordinance that prohibits the sharing of food with people, thus ensuring that people of good will can make up for the gap in social services that exists on the weekends. We recognize that this is not a permanent solution, but merely the first step toward making Raleigh a truly hospitable city.

Love Wins would also like to recognize the swift and attentive manner in which the City Council responded to last weekend’s incident in Moore Square, and we look forward to working together on the long, hard road to reconciliation that is before us as Raleigh learns to embrace all of its citizens.

In the the photos below, breakfast guests and volunteers thank the Mayor and City Council for temporarily not enforcing the ordinance. Thank you for bringing back our breakfast.
