Facing increasing demand, Soup Kitchen of Muncie needs more volunteers

MUNCIE — The Soup Kitchen of Muncie needs volunteers to prepare and serve food on weekdays.

Nearly all food preparation, distribution, and cleanup is performed by volunteers, according to Executive Director Loretta Parsons. And the need for volunteers is growing, because as pandemic restrictions lift and people are becoming more comfortable being in public again, the Soup Kitchen is experiencing an increase in the number of people it serves.

“Without volunteers, we could not do what we do every day,” Parsons said in a  release. “I can say from experience that volunteering leads to a sense of purpose and fulfillment. Our volunteers are grateful to be able to give back to the community.”

The Soup Kitchen needs volunteers for the morning shift, 7:30-11 a.m., Monday through Friday, and for the afternoon shift, 1-4 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
