Capuchin Soup Kitchen
The Capuchin Soup Kitchen consists of its Meldrum and Conner kitchen/dining room sites, Capuchin Services Center, Rosa Parks Children & Youth program, Earthworks Urban Farm, On the Rise Bakery, and Jefferson House.
Founded in 1929, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen serves Metro Detroit by providing food, clothing, and human development programs to the people of our community. Two meal sites prepare and serve up to 2,000 free meals a day. In addition, we sponsor a shower program, social work assistance, and substance abuse counseling services. The Soup Kitchen’s Capuchin Services Center distributes household items and clothing, and provides emergency food pantry services. Our Rosa Parks Children’s & Youth program offers tutoring sessions and an art therapy program. Earthworks Urban Farm produces vegetables for consumption in the two dining rooms, and educates the community in regards to sustainable relationships between human beings and the earth. The On the Rise Bakery is designed to assist individuals "re-entering" society after bouts of incarceration or substance abuse. Jefferson House, a twelve-bed, residential treatment facility, assists indigent males seeking to reclaim their lives from addictions.
The Capuchin Soup Kitchen depends primarily on donations; we receive no government funding.
