Inspired by St. Francis of Assisi, we tend to people’s basic needs, especially the need for food. We also strive to stimulate minds, nourish spirits, and address root causes of social injustice.

Volunteer services suspended

Volunteer services suspended

With the latest date extension of the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order by Governor Whitmer, and continuing to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and after careful assessment, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen continues to suspend all volunteer services until further notice. As we monitor the situation carefully, we will continue reassessing as we receive updated information to discern an appropriate timeframe to resume volunteer services. This change affects volunteers at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen Meldrum and Conner meal sites, Capuchin Services Center, Rosa Parks Children’s Program and On the Rise Bakery. Volunteer opportunities are available at Earthworks Urban Farm.
