Serving hundreds of meals a day, the two Capuchin Soup Kitchen locations on the east side of Detroit are a lifeline for the city’s homeless population. With COVID-19 closing the nonprofit’s cafeterias, the soup kitchen has continued to provide hundreds of meals on a daily basis. The location at 1264 Meldrum St. provides to-go meals for the homeless from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Monday through Friday, while the 4390 Conner St. location serves hot meals 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Not exclusively for the homeless, meals also can be bought by those who can afford to spend a couple of dollars, though a meal will never be denied because of an inability to pay. Additionally, the soup kitchen has been a green kitchen for more than 10 years, creating zero waste through recycling. It also uses earth-friendly cleaning products.
