Sue Nishi, director of The Breakfast at St. Andrew’s, recently chatted with Lucy Ann Lance on her Community Cares segment about the impact The Breakfast Program has had serving a daily breakfast to those in need in the Ann Arbor community since 1982.
There have been some exciting developments in the Breakfast Program this fall. The Washtenaw County Health Department issued an upgraded health license for our commercial kitchen in October. This new license allows us to expand our menu. We have started serving sausage, breakfast sandwiches, pancakes with fresh blueberries, scrambled eggs, French toast, and deli meats and cheese for sandwiches to go. Future plans include breakfast casseroles and breakfast burritos. We are even considering adding a homemade soup and chili station in the winter. It may not be traditional breakfast food, but it will be warm and comforting (and full of protein and fresh vegetables).
Don’t miss multi-Grammy winner Rosanne Cash who will headline this year’s Breakfast Program benefit concert on Saturday, May 13, 8 p.m., at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor.
Tickets for the show, presented by The Ark and Acoustic Routes Concerts, are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
Hailed by Rolling Stone magazine as “one of the most ambitious and literary songwriters of her generation,” Cash has released 15 albums of extraordinary songs that have earned four Grammy Awards and 12 nominations, as well as 21 Top 40 hits, including 11 chart-topping singles.
“It’s a privilege to support such a worthy and life-changing organization, and also to return to the Michigan Theater,” said Cash. “I have fond memories of my last concert there and look forward to a great evening for a great cause.”
This year’s show is made possible with the generous support of General Motors, The Bank of Ann Arbor, Curaleaf, Zingerman’s Community of Businesses, Karen Moeller Design and Delta Airlines.

Winter is just around the corner again, and here in Ann Arbor we have already had several snowy days. We continue to serve breakfast every morning to anyone who needs it. Because of the increase of COVID-19 cases in Michigan, we have made the decision to remain for the time being with our current take-out style breakfast. We are thankful for the two local bakeries who provide us with hot breakfast sandwiches in the mornings. They are Great Harvest Bread Co. (https://GreatHarvestAA.com/) and Brewed Awakenings Café (https://brewedawakeningscafe.com/). They have been wonderful to work with and our breakfast guests really appreciate the sandwiches.
As the weather has turned colder we have continued to serve daily carry-out meals to our guests. Last week we were able to begin an exciting partnership with Brewed Awakenings Cafe and Salt Springs Brewery, both located in Saline. These local restaurants are providing us with hot sandwiches each morning so that our guests can receive a hot meal all winter long. The owners of these restaurants have been wonderful to work with, and the joy on the faces of our guests when we were able to hand them each a delicious breakfast sandwich was truly something to see. 2020 has shown us how important living in community with one another is and this is just another example of what we can all accomplish working together. Both of these restaurants are open for carry-out right now. Please consider visiting them next time you are ordering in!
