Feed'em Soup holds pancake fundraiser

Published: Monday, Feb. 11, 2013 1:24 p.m. CDT

Valentine's Day should be a romantic and unique end to the work week. Another reality is that dinner and a movie are nice, but perhaps you can try something new while helping your favorite local nonprofit organization. Leave all your Valentine's Day plans until the day after for a truly unique date. Feed'em Soup Community Project's pancake dinner is scheduled for Friday with a lunch service from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (limited to 150 people) and dinner service from 4:30 to 8 p.m. (limited to 350 people) at 122 S. First St., DeKalb.

After you’ve purchased your box of chocolates through another Feed’em Soup fundraiser, you can allow Chef Alex Smith to take care of your sweet tooth via his gourmet pancakes. There will be the saccharine gourmet flavors mixed berry pancakes (raspberry, strawberry and blueberry), Elvis pancakes (peanut butter, chocolate chips and bananas) and cinnamon roll pancakes (brown sugar, cinnamon and a gooey homemade icing). If you have a taste for the savory, try the bacon pancakes (bits of fresh cooked bacon mixed right in the batter). Sides will include sausage and fruit.

Tickets are on sale in advance for $10 per person at www.FeedEmSoup.org; kids 5 and younger eat free. Tickets also are available at the door on Friday and are payable by cash, checks and all major credit cards. One hundred percent of all proceeds will go toward funding Feed'em Soup Community Project's services.

This year’s dinner will feature live music during the dinner service by Yesterday’s News featuring Frank Riccardi and Art Guerrero.
