The mission of the Crescent City Cafe is to serve breakfast to New Orleans’ homeless and low-income residents with dignity and to connect young adults together in service to our community. Crescent City Cafe desires to demonstrate the love of God through actions and words and to bring awareness to the issue of homelessness. Founded in February 2009, the Cafe simulates a restaurant, complete with breakfast specials that change each time. The volunteer servers take orders from guests and run them back to the kitchen, where other volunteers are at the helm — cooking up the orders and plating the food.
We have a limited number of volunteer spots available, so please only sign up if you actually intend to come!
Come at 7:00 a.m. SHARP to the back doors of Rayne Memorial United Methodist Church, 3900 St. Charles Ave., 70115. The back doors are actually located around the block on Pitt St. The streets on either side of the church are Constantinople and Gen. Taylor. We will be done with volunteering by around 10:30 am.
The community service committee is led by Co-Chairs Marcus Hunter and Claire Ojeh. Please reach out to Marcus and Claire with any questions.
