All Saints Episcopal Church Soup and Sandwich Saturday (Non-profit)
475 Main St. | Johnson City, NY 13790 [view map]
Soup and Sandwich Saturday provides a free meal to anyone who wishes to participate. The meal is served from Noon to 1:00 PM every Saturday. We serve a choice of two soups,sandwiches, and dessert. We also try to provide fresh fruit and vegetables (salads or cut up vegetables) as available. The purpose of our program is to provide both a meal and socialization to all who come. We have chosen to do this on a Saturday because this is a day when school lunches are not available. We choose the Noon meal because we want people to feel safe walking or riding the bus to our program.
We have a core of volunteers who have been working since the inception of our program in 2007. Each volunteer works one Saturday a month. Every week, Captain is responsible for the planning, preparation, and overseeing of the weekly meal. Volunteers cook, serve, and clean-up. The approximate time frame from start to finish is from 9:30 AM to 2:30PM. Volunteers may serve for the entire 4 hours, or take part in a specific task during that time thus cutting down on the hours they are engaged each week. Our newly renovated kitchen can accommodate up to 4 volunteers at a time. Volunteers can join a team or work on a one time basis. Binghamton University volunteers have been instrumental in helping us carry out this important community outreach and we look forward to meeting new student or staff volunteers.
