Welcome Café to host free community brunch

The Welcome Café & Community Kitchen will host a community brunch from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 158 N. Fourth St. in DeKalb.

The brunch will be prepared by Terri Mann-Lamb of Sunnflower Catering and volunteers. It will be provided on a free-will donation basis. Music will be provided by local musicians.

The Welcome Café offers more than just a meal; a helping hand for the unemployed and under-employed also is available. This month’s seminar offers a chance to work with Illinois WorkNet. Information on filling out job applications, general equivalency degree, English as a second language, and coursework available at Kishwaukee College will be provided. Computers also will be available for job searches and resume work. 

NB&T Bank will provide budgeting information and answers to financial questions. 

This event is a joint effort with students from Northern Illinois University who will provide a helping hand. Organizations such as the NIU Chapter of Bread for the World, Alpha Phi Omega, local Girl Scouts, and the NIU Student Health Organization will contribute to the meal and the day. 

Everyone is welcome.
