Capuchin Soup Kitchen
Founded in 1929, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen serves Metro Detroit by providing food, clothing, and human development programs to the people of our community. In addition to preparing and serving up to 2,000 meals a day, it operates a shower program, emergency food pantry, and a tutoring and art therapy program for children. It also distributes household items and clothing. Its Earthworks Urban Farm produces 6,000 pounds of produce from a two and a half acre organic farm, and educates the community in regards to sustainable relationships between human beings and the earth. The Soup Kitchen’s On the Rise Bakery assists individuals "re-entering" society after bouts of incarceration or substance abuse. In addition, the Soup Kitchen’s Jefferson House--a twelve bed residential treatment facility--assists indigent males seeking to reclaim their lives from addiction.
