The role of the Barristers Volunteer Breakfast Committee is to serve a monthly breakfast to folks who are underprivileged and often homeless at the Volunteer Ministry Center. Past chairs have worked hard to develop a monthly schedule (every 4th Thursday breakfast), a menu (sausage biscuits, oatmeal, bananas, etc.), and a great system of volunteers. The committee seeks firm and individual sponsorships to cover the cost of breakfast each month. Sponsors are asked to purchase food or make a $150 donation to purchase the food and volunteer to serve.

Volunteer Breakfasts Committee Activities
We can think of no better goal than to have every KBA member involved so that together we can improve our community in the spirit of camaraderie and dedication to public service that has long been a hallmark of the legal profession. To that end, the Knoxville Barristers needs your help. The Knoxville Barristers Volunteer Breakfast Committee needs sponsors and volunteers for the upcoming year. The Volunteer Breakfast is a recurring event on the 4th Thursday of each month at 6:15 a.m. that provides and serves breakfast at the Volunteer Ministry Center, located at 511 N. Broadway, Knoxville, TN 37917. We would like to secure sponsors and volunteers for the entire year.
