DePaul University Division of Mission and Ministry > Community Service > Seton Soup Kitchen
The Elizabeth Ann Seton Food Pantry & Soup Kitchen began in 1980 at St. Vincent de Paul parish, handing out coffee and sandwiches to patrons on our front porch. Today, our sandwich kitchen is open 4 days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday). We serve, on average, 50-60 meals a day. We also provide hygiene kits, socks, gloves, hats and winter clothing to our guests. Volunteers include parishioners, DePaul students, faculty and staff, and others from the neighborhood.
Volunteers shifts run from 7:15 - 10:00a.m.
Food and meals are prepared beginning at 7:15a.m. and the kitchen is open to serve meals from 8:00-9:30a.m. Following food service, there is clean up until 10:00a.m. We are limited to four volunteers per shift. Gloves and masks are required.
Volunteers can schedule themselves using an online scheduling system.
