YOU’RE INVITED TO A TYPICAL DAY
AT FRIDAY SOUP KITCHEN
We start at 9 A.M. preparing the hot, nutritious meal we’ll be serving that day. A typical meal might be chicken parmesan with pasta and Italian green beans and we always prepare macaroni and cheese for our vegetarian guests. Plus there’s always a freshly chopped salad and fruit cocktail. All to make over 300 meals.
Since this may be the only meal our guests eat that day, we give them hearty portions and even provide snacks to take away – a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread, a banana, and a granola bar.
And what meal would be complete without freshly baked bread and a sweet treat provided by our friends at Orwasher's Bakery and Whole Foods.
Then it’s time to set up for mealtime. Our volunteers set up the dining room. It’s restaurant style all the way. Each table of eight is set with a tablecloth, real dishes, real flatware, ceramic mugs, a placemat designed by local schoolchildren – and a floral centerpiece.
*Watch 4 hours on a typical Friday in 4 minutes!
