You probably know someone who is going through a difficult time financially right now. It could be due to the economy, job loss or change, health reasons, divorce, or any of a variety of reasons. It’s good to know that there are organizations that can help in your time of hardship. Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry is an organization that helps residents in the Naperville area and DuPage county with food assistance. Households outside of that area may receive a one-time emergency distribution. I took a tour of Loaves & Fishes and was able to see how they run the pantry. They have it laid out like a grocery store, so when people come in, they can have that experience, plus they offer some personal care items also, which is so helpful to many households. I know they can use any help with donations or funds to stock their pantry so they can help as many families as possible. When you attend Soup’s On!, a portion will go back to them.
About Soup’s On!:
On Sunday, October 19th, the Rotary Club of Naperville will be hosting “Soup’s On!”, a fun, family focused fundraiser featuring great entertainment and plenty of delicious food. Benefitting Hesed House, DuPage PADS, Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry and the Rotary Club of Naperville Charities, the concept of “Soup’s On” ties in with the theme of a “soup kitchen” and feeding people in need – a goal of these three not-for-profit organizations.
Over 30 local restaurants will be serving soups, stews, chili, chowders, and BBQ as well as artisan cheeses, specialty bread and yummy deserts. There will also be a specific children’s menu available. Guest will be treated to live entertainment by students from Districts 203 and 204. In addition, “Soup’s On!” will also have a children’s activity area sponsored by the DuPage Children’s Museum, and a silent auction.
