Ministry Statistics

In 2022, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen provided over 150,000 meals at our Conner and Meldrum soup kitchens. We thank all of you for your dedicated support of our ministry. Learn about different ways to support us.

Meldrum Kitchen

We served 52,000 meals last year at this location. Approximately 200 meals a day are served at the Meldrum Kitchen. Our Meldrum guests are typically male, experiencing homelessness or in unstable housing, often diagnosed with a mental illness and/or substance abuse addiction.

We provided an opportunity for individuals to receive a shower at this location. Our facility provides showers and a change of clothing each day to give those in need a fresh focus and an increased sense of dignity and self-worth.

Conner Kitchen

We served 98,000 meals last year at this location. Approximately 320 meals a day are served at the Conner Kitchen to working families and seniors. As many as one-third of its meals are served to children 12 and under. 


Service Center

We provided 1,252,121 pounds of food last year to our Detroit neighbors. The food pantry serves about 240 people per day, many of which represent households, which amounts to about 5,000 pounds of food every day. The Service Center features a 'shoppers' choice' food pantry to resemble a small grocery store, complete with reach-in freezers and coolers, vegetable and fruit islands, bread and pastry racks.
