Introduction The Breakfast-To-Go program started in order to fill a gap in service due to the pandemic when the Busby Centre breakfast program closed down. The collaborative partnership with other Barrie churches and community service agencies was meant to be a short term response. We soon realized the need was greater than we thought. The program is now one of the many programs supported by the Outreach ministry at Burton Avenue United Church. The program continues to be a true community collaboration of neighbours helping neighbours.
We are one of seven teams serving a healthy breakfast 7 days a week to an average of 60 people per morning in downtown Barrie (currently inside of Trinity Anglican church).
