Feed’em Soup is partnering with two community-based programs as the 50/50 fundraiser program continues to gain momentum.

The drive-through fundraiser to be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday will benefit both FES and the Barb Food Mart. The Barb Food Mart is a recently established food bank that works exclusively to combat hunger in DeKalb schools, where half of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch program. The cost is $10 per meal and the menu is three-cheese mac and cheese (vegetarian) and dinner roll or spaghetti with meat sauce and garlic bread. Both meals come with a house salad with cucumber apple dressing and Oreo coffee cheesecake with salted caramel sauce.

On Oct. 1, from 4 to 7 p.m., will be another drive-through fundraiser that will benefit Ben Gordon Center, an organization that focuses on mental health and addiction recovery. The cost is $10 per meal and the menu is two-piece barbecue or marinated chicken dinner, BLT pasta salad, cole slaw and dinner roll.

Tickets for both events can be purchased in person, or online at
