In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. Appel (the magician) passes by in a hurry to take breakfast to his family. Despite it being later in the day, he mentions to King Friday, Queen Sara, and Lady Aberlin that it is the first thing his family will have eaten that day. Lady Aberlin learns that Mr. Appel had to sell his cape in order to pay for the food. To help Mr. Appel, King Friday establishes the King Friday Queen Sara Saturday Royal Foundation for the Performing Arts (KFQSSRFFTPA).
