Your workplace can participate in a special way by designation one day as Goodfellows Soup Day. It’s easy and your co-workers will enjoy getting in the Christmas Spirit in this special way.
Goodfellows Soup Day Planning Made Easy
Step 1: Select a place (such as a canteen area) for a buffet line and another area (such as a nearby conference room) as a dining area.
Step 2: Recruit co-workers to bring a crock-pot of soup on the appropriate day (make sure there is a good variety) – about 1 pot for every 6-7 employees. You can also have employees bring sandwiches, salads or baked goods to go along with the soup.
Step 3: Get the word out by using memos, email, posters, etc…
Step 4: Provide cracker baskets, spoons, forks, napkins, bowls, cups, and plates. Employees can get thier own drinks from vending machines.
Step 5: Plug in the crock-pots about 30 minutes prior to lunch and keep the soup stirred. You may want the employees to plug in the soup at thier workstations – the aroma throughout the office makes everyone hungry and reminds them that it’s Goodfellows Soup Day!
Step 6: Collect contributions for lunch and have change on hand (suggested contribution of $5.00 per person.)
Step 7: Encourage your employer to match the amount raised.
Step 8: Clean up after the event.
