Volunteers preparing lunch!

More About The
Soup Kitchen

The soup kitchen continues to exist because of generous donors and the kind volunteers that come to help out.  Food preparation begins around 8:30 in the morning.  The day chef directs volunteers to chop vegetables for the soup and salads. 

As the tables are set, volunteers decorate the tables with flowers.  At 11:00 the volunteers get together to have lunch and taste the offerings for the day.  If you are interested, there are many ways you can help.

Every weekday, volunteers are needed for:

  • Preparing soups, salads, extra sides & desserts
  • Waiting on guests who need assistance at table
  • Ladling soups
  • Pouring water & milk
  • Serving salads, desserts, extras, bread & butter
  • Busing & wiping tables
  • Mopping up spills
  • Collecting washable bowls, glasses & spoons
  • Washing & drying dishes
  • Cleaning & sweeping the dining room
  • Hosting guests in the clothing room
  • Monitoring guest safety in the courtyard
