During the Coronavirus pandemic, take-away meals are being served outdoors at our meal sites located at 1264 Meldrum and 4390 Conner on the east side of Detroit.
Currently, take-away meals are available for pickup at Meldrum from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and at Conner from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Starting on Tuesday, April 7, our 4390 Conner meal program site will continue serving “to-go” meals outside from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm, Mondays through Saturdays. This food will be prepared and brought over from the Meldrum meal site. Starting on Wednesday, April 8, our 1264 Meldrum meal program site will continue serving “to-go” meals outside with these new hours: 8:30 am - 9:30 am and from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm, Mondays through Fridays. Our client advocate will be available.
Ordinarily, the two kitchen/dining room sites serve full-course, nutritious meals to hundreds of men, women, and children each day. While monetary donations are gratefully accepted, no one is denied a meal because of their inability to pay. There is no eligibility criteria, and meals are served in spacious, clean and attractive settings.
Whereas a portion of the food prepared and served in the kitchens is donated, the major part is purchased, preferably from Michigan producers. Both locations strive to be mindful of environmental concerns by composting organic food waste, and utilizing recyclable consumables and “earth-friendly” cleaning products.
