For over 80 years, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen has served the people of Detroit. What initially started by serving soup to the poor from the doors of St. Bonaventure Monastery, to the large collection of services that are offered today, the “soup kitchen” continues to provide food, clothing, rehabilitation, and sustainable life skills to the poor and homeless.
Today there are two locations that serve meals, both serving a combined number of 1000 meals per day. A third location handles other needs, such as clothing, appliances, and emergency food. Other programs such as child care, substance about counseling, and Earthworks Urban Farm are all supported by the Capuchin Soup Kitchen.
The most recent project On The Rise Bakery, a business venture started by men who’d completed the rehabilitation program. These men, convicted felons with drug addictions, have not only transformed their lives through the Capuchins, but seek to change others’ lives as well.
