Orlando, FL – Men & women enrolled in Central Florida’s only on-site Work Training Program are preparing for the one of their biggest days of the year. On Friday, April 3, 2015, the Orlando Union Rescue Mission (OURM) will host its Annual Easter Banquet. The 16 participants in the OURM Discipleship Work Training Program have been working diligently to prepare home-cooked Easter dinners for hundreds of Central Florida’s hungriest residents. Participants working in the kitchen, have practice runs to feed the multitudes daily. On average, 922 meals are served at OURM each day. The program is beneficial to OURM residents; many either list it as work experience on their resume, or when applying for various career training schools. In addition to hospitality, the organization also offers job training in retail, maintenance, and education.
The Easter Banquet is free and open to anyone within the community that is in need of a meal. OURM staff is preparing to hand out anywhere from 600 to 800 dinners at the Banquet. The menu being served will be Ham with pineapple glaze, sweet potatoes with apples, green beans, dinner rolls, cookies & brownies. Along with a warm meal, OURM will distribute hygiene packs that have been donated by schools, churches, individuals and local organizations throughout the community.
