Editor's Note: Parents feeling party pressure
I have a lot of admiration for Feed’em Soup.
When it comes to bold ambition and optimism, as an organization, they’re tough to beat. Two years ago Feed’em Soup was a small group of 20-somethings ready to change their community. Today, the group feeds several hundred people each week, holds regular events and fundraisers and has written, for a fledgling nonprofit in an economic downturn, a remarkable success story.
But if getting a nonprofit off the ground is like climbing a mountain, 2013 may be the Alps for Feed’em Soup. In an unfortunate coincidence of timing, the organization is losing its roommate – which has been picking up a share of rent and utilities – at the same time it is expanding its meal schedule. That leaves the meal service with increased overhead at the same time that it is trying to increase services.
