Dignity. That’s a word that came to mind when I browsed the “Feed’Em Soup” site. Feed ‘em Soup is a non-profit organization in DeKalb that serves a community meal every Wednesday from 5 to 7. Everyone is welcome. It is a pay what you can meal, even if that is nothing. To me the dignity part comes with the restaurant type atmosphere. It’s not just a soup kitchen. It’s a place to sit down and have a good meal. A choice of soup or salad is offered along with a main course. Again, the meal is open to everyone. The entire community, old, young, economically advantaged and disadvantaged can come and share a meal.
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 9 pm to 3 am, Feed’em Soup offers Tapas for a price. All proceeds go to the Wednesday night meal. The eats are just $2 for sliders and about a dollar for sides. So, if you have a college student at Northern Illinois University, pass this information along. It’s inexpensive food to satisfy their late night cravings and their money will go to a good cause. Who knows, they might decide to volunteer there and have an additional great experience.
