Community Partnership Exchange Breakfast

Solutions-focused community of stakeholders- That’s Charity in Action

“The place where good friends, information, and biscuits meet”


Charity Productions produced the community partnership exchange breakfast to provide a dialog vehicle for neighborhoods labeled as underserved in October 2002.

Our core principles revolve around fact-based information distributed to enhance stakeholder participation with specific acquired lessons learned involving community participator research principles. As citizens grow in utilizing advocacy concepts and evidence-based research ultimately improving their subject matter presentations to any legislative body for serious consideration. The intended outcome is to produce overwhelming organic solutions that will reduce politically designed artificial barriers.

In October 2002, the breakfasts became we became a living group of people with 135 community stakeholders from several neighboring subdivisions in attendance. Now, we are active in over 60 neighborhoods in Houston/Harris County. In 2010 and 2013, we added six breakfasts on the northeast, North Side MBC, and Galilee MBC on the northwest side totaling ten events a year in three sections of Houston. In 2019, we expanded to the Taylor’s Entertainment Center on the southwest side.

In 2022, we reached a milestone marking the twentieth year with the Community Partnership Xchange Breakfast. The largest of its kind in the state of Texas.

Breakfast History

The community partnership breakfast was launched as a community-based effort to improve civic engagement by distributing fact-based information to develop more home-grown advocates.

In October 2002, our first breakfast was at Pentecostal MBC, with 135 attendees followed by St. Paul BC, Bethel BC, and South Union Church of Christ. The breakfasts are scheduled quarterly, always on Thursdays. These breakfasts aim to inspire grassroots leadership to organize around shared interests, resulting in community capital. Using civic clubs has hubs for programmatic activities through mutual interest and advocating for better tax-based service delivery improvements. These breakfasts serve as a resource pool, a repository of collective civic history, social interaction, cultural enrichment, business exchange, political platforms, and a springboard of diverse access and direct referral contacts

Breakfast Goal

These breakfasts are at no cost to citizens. For the past 22 years, these breakfasts have existed from being self-funded, co-sponsors, and advertising dollars.

The goal is to become sustainable through, flagship co-sponsors, research, and advertising dollars.

Another goal involves building capacity to host sixteen breakfasts per year. Sixteen breakfasts becomes a stabilizing component that services as a data collection port, a cultural exchange information distribution platform of exchanges. These breakfasts generate funding from co-sponsors, selling advertisements, booth space, and commercials.

After the first three breakfasts, our attendance accrued between 360 to 430, with our highest attendance estimated at 800 people in 2007, Bethel Baptist Church. COVID-19 hit in March 2020; our last North Side breakfast convened on February 20, 2020, at Northside MBC. We held a quarterly gathering in December 2021, January 2022, and June 2022, and our Commemorative twentieth breakfast on October 20, 2022.

In 2023 we look forward to many new benchmarks.

Charity Productions occupies some of the most sought-after human capital in Houston, the retired and working class.

We have the former and current movers and shakers as well as the parents and grandparents of Houston.

Another element about these breakfasts involves capturing the vanishing historical roots, the legends from these subdivisions, and not forgetting the legacy of the people from these neighborhoods that contributed to Houston’s cultural status and development, as Houston soars to become an international city.

Breakfast Security and Safety

The safety of these breakfasts is most important to us. We will have ushers or paid security to escort any participant off-premises exhibiting unacceptable or unauthorized behavior regardless of their position. Candidates and elected officials considering attending, please register before the event to become co-sponsors. Our events are paid for and held at private venues.

Our last full breakfast was held on the north side at North Side MBC on Curry Rd, on February 26, 2020, due to covid 19.

Our October 20, 2022, Commemorative Breakfast was a packed event. We have temperature checks, masks, sanitizing, safe distancing, and food handling safety practices.
