SOUP-ER Program Connects Campus to Individuals in Need

Some highlights from the SOUP-ER program in the past year. JUMP student leaders and volunteers discuss the program and the impact it has had on them and the community.

Join Us Making Progress (JUMP), the community service organization at Sonoma State University, connects students with various volunteer opportunities in the local community.

One program takes place entirely on campus and makes a significant difference to the homeless population in Santa Rosa.

This program, Serving Our Unfed People Everyday Re-packaging (SOUP-ER), allows volunteers to repackage untouched food from the Zinfandel cafeteria to be utilized by the Saint Vincent de Paul Dining Room in Santa Rosa.

The Saint Vincent de Paul Dining Room serves about 250 meals per day. The SOUP-ER program, in partnership with Dining Services, contributes to these meals.
