Our View: Thumbs up to Feed’em Soup adding helpings of assistance
Thumbs up: To the Feed’em Soup community kitchen, which has expanded to include its new Feed’em After Dark program. It plans to expand services to offer a free weekly meal to the community and add a pay-what-you-can price plan. Feed’em After Dark will be open from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with a low-priced $1 to $2 menu at 122 S. First St. in DeKalb. The success of the new late-night eatery will be critical for Feed’em Soup to provide free weekly meals, and could also give the community kitchen a safety net if there is a slowdown in donations.
