Breakfast is the most important meal--at least that's what those in positions of nutritional authority have always told us. Whether it's bacon and eggs, a bowl of cereal, toast and jelly, or the longtime American favorite pancakes smothered in syrup, it's the food that sets the course (and the stomach) for the rest of the day.
Boise early birds can start their day off right Thursday, Aug. 22, from 7:30-10 a.m. at The Grove Plaza, thanks to United Way's annual Flapjack Feed, which kicks off its Community Impact Campaign.
Along with flipping flapjacks, United Way team members will answer questions and explain how the organization's programs impact their neighborhoods' health, education and financial independence.
Pancakes aren't the only thing on the morning's menu--tuck into some rosemary red potatoes courtesy of J.R. Simplot Co., or some fresh fruit straight from Albertsons. Breakfast costs a $5 suggested donation to United Way, and you can even pre-pay online.
Once you've had your fill, grab a few raffle tickets with prizes including Idaho Steelheads tickets, passes to Zoo Boise and Roaring Springs, a three-minute grocery grab at Albertsons, a year's supply of coffee from Dutch Bros. Coffee, lift tickets to Bogus Basin and more. Tickets cost $5 each or five for $20.
