Become a Breakfast Buddy

Looking for a fun way to support the families we serve? Sign up to be a Breakfast Buddy as part of our Healthy Breakfast program!

Here's how it works! You and your group of friends can sign up to come to our Chestnut Street House on available Tuesdays or Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., or Sunday evenings from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., or to our Front and Erie House on Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to prepare, individually package and stock the next morning’s healthy breakfast options for approximately 40 to 50 people at Chestnut Street and 25 to 30 people at Front and Erie.

Breakfast Buddies are responsible for purchasing and/or preparing all of the items that will be available at the next morning’s breakfast. Items will be kept in our Healthy Breakfast Nook refrigerator and bakery cases until the next morning when families can grab items on their way to the hospital. You won't actually be serving your dishes, but simply providing snacks or helping us keep our refrigerators stocked with quick and easy breakfast items for the next morning.

  • 24 low-fat Greek yogurt cups (assorted flavors)
  • 10 pounds of bananas
