The Unitarian Universalist Church will host a breakfast for the community from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the church located at 158 N. Fourth St., DeKalb. The meal will be provided on a free-will donation basis.

The menu will include egg casseroles, steel cut oatmeal, fresh fruit and breads from Sweet Dreams Desserts and Catering in Sycamore.

The Welcome Café & Community Kitchen served its first breakfast last May and began its monthly brunch Dec. 15. Located at the Unitarian Church, the WCCK will not only serve brunch but also provide community resources such as Illinois WorkNet and banking services for anyone in need.

WCCK also has partnered with Northern Illinois University’s Bread for the World service fraternity for volunteers and Voluntary Action Center for transportation.

WCCK uses the pay-as-you-can model for its Saturday brunches which has been used successfully by many community kitchens such as Panera and Feed’Em Soup.
