The Capuchin Soup Kitchen's Meldrum site is located one block from the original soup kitchen location on Mt. Elliott and serves the chronically poor. Meldrum guests are typically male, homeless or poorly housed, often diagnosed with a mental illness and/or substance abuse addiction. In addition, this facility provides showers and a change of clothing for about 30 people each day to give those in need a fresh focus and an increased sense of dignity and self-worth.
