Capuchin Ministries in Detroit continues to dish out hot meals and provide essential services amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is still seeking donations. The nonprofit organization’s two Capuchin Soup Kitchens are providing to-go meals available for pickup at 1264 Meldrum St. and 4390 Conner St. in Detroit. The Meldrum location’s new hours are 8:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Monday through Friday, while the Conner locations hours are 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The Capuchin Service Center, which provides food and clothing for those in need, also continues to operate during this time. Located at 6333 Medbury St. in Detroit, it is open 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. The center’s clothing section provides a “retail feel” for picking out clothes, while the food pantry has reach-in freezers, bread racks, and fruit islands, similar to what is found in small grocery stores. Each patron of the food pantry gets a food weight limit based on their family size, but perishable items such as bread, dairy, and fresh vegetables do not contribute to this weight limit. Because of the pandemic, the organization is asking that appointments be made ahead of time by calling (313) 925-0514. The ministry-sponsored 12-bed Jefferson House also remains open to those seeking addiction counseling and rehabilitation. The On The Rise Bakery and Earthworks Urban Farm programs in Detroit are publicly suspended, though they are operating with minimal staff to supply the two soup kitchens.
