With the latest date extension of the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order by Governor Whitmer, and continuing to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and after careful assessment, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen continues to suspend all volunteer services until further notice. As we monitor the situation carefully, we will continue reassessing as we receive updated information to discern an appropriate timeframe to resume volunteer services. This change affects volunteers at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen Meldrum and Conner meal sites, Capuchin Services Center, Earthworks Urban Farm, Rosa Parks Children’s Program and On the Rise Bakery. With some adjustments, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen plans to remain open using existing staff to continue to serve.
The Capuchin Soup Kitchen remains open with adjusted hours to serve those in need. We are focusing our efforts on the most critical needs: social work services and food. Each week brings new challenges so please be watchful for further announcements.
True to our Franciscan heritage, when a need has been uncovered, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen has responded to that need.
