SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — It’s been over 20 years since members of Parkview Christian Church pondered what their main mission project would be, then gazed across the street and found it.

It was right there: Parkview High School in Springfield.

The small nondenominational church of about 120 Sunday worshippers has been feeding its neighbors – the students of Parkview – a hearty breakfast every Tuesday and Thursday morning of the school year since 1999.

I was there Tuesday as well over 100 students came and went from 6:50 a.m. to about 8:15 a.m.

The free breakfast included pancakes, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs and hash browns.
