JRC Soup Kitchens

JRC's Sunday Soup KitchenJRC members operate three Soup Kitchens in Evanston eight times per year at which groups of JRC volunteers cook a community meal for approximately 90 people in need. Participants are often asked to contribute food items for the meal, and to prepare, serve and clean up. Children are welcome when supervised by their parents.

After long and devoted service, some soup kitchen leaders are ready to train new leaders. Could you be one? Could you and a friend be a leadership team?
