Feed'em Soup Community Project

Wednesday Dinner Service

Age Requirement: 12 when accompanied by an adult, otherwise 15

Note: We can no longer accommodate late arrivals. Dinner starts at 5pm and volunteers need to be trained and in place by then. Arrivals after 5pm will likely be assigned to dishes and clean up if there is a need. Those wishing to volunteer MUST sign up, walk-ins for Wednesday dinner service are typically not accepted.

You will be working in a commercial kitchen or our dining rooms. Volunteers are expected and REQUIRED to follow proper health code and sanitation procedures. Feed’em Soup staff will be able to work with you and properly train you to insure all codes are followed. Volunteers will be working in an environment that contains fire, knives and other sharp objects, bleach, raw meat (chicken, beef, pork) and other potentially hazardous food products, raw produce, peanuts and other potential allergens and other items you may encounter in a commercial kitchen. Volunteers will be working with a variety of very expensive commercial kitchen equipment provided to help our community by donors and grant makers. Volunteers need to ensure the proper handling and care of equipment to ensure it is able to continuously used to feed our community.

What to Wear:

- Closed Toed Shoes. ABSOLUTELY NO sandals or flip flops

- Hair restraint – A Hat, Bandana, Headband etc. If you do not bring your own, we do have less-than-fashionable hair nets.

- As little jewelry as possible

- Comfortable, yet professional clothing. Please, no old sweat pants with letters across the butt.

-  We have Feed'em Soup T-shirts available for purchase. They are $12.00 each. You can also purchase them at Moxie in DeKalb or Stomp in Sycamore. A T-shirt is NOT required, but most volunteers prefer to wear one while volunteering.

- A positive attitude. Like anything in life, your time will include "Customer Service" and as we all know, not all customers are pleasant. Volunteers are expected to handle the rare negative experiences with grace, respect and a smile. 

What to Bring:

- We ask that each volunteer bring a roll of paper towels to donate to help offset the costs to keep them stocked (Approximately $1,500/year)

- An Apron (We do have some available)

Where do I park?

- Every shift EXCEPT Wednesday Dinner Service can park in DeKalb Public Lot 2, directly bordering the south side of our building
- Wednesday Dinner Shift should NOT park in DeKalb Public Lot 2 so that the senior citizens and disabled dinner guests can park in the more accessible spots. The best place to park is in the lot south of our building across the train tracks.

Available Jobs:
Waiter - Takes Orders, Fills Drink Orders, Socializes W/ Guests
Food Runner - Delivers food from kitchen to tables
Service Line - Plates and garnishes food to order
Busser - Cleans and wipes down tables after guests finish dinner
Dish Washer - Washing dishes
Buffet Line - Serving soup, salad and dessert in the main dining room directly to customers

Please make a note in the comment section about which job you would prefer. We will do our best to accommodate requests for volunteers that arrive on time, but we cannot guarantee all requests can be fulfilled.
