The Capuchin Soup Kitchen remains open to serve those in need. However, we are focusing our efforts on the most critical needs: food and social work.
Please join us on Monday, April 27, to help us celebrate our 44th Annual Buddy’s Pizza “Slice for Life” benefit for the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in partnership with Buddy’s Restaurants. Come anytime between 11 AM and 10 PM that day to any Buddy’s Pizza location. Tickets are now available online and on the day of the event at all locations.
The Capuchin Soup Kitchen receives no government subsidies; the ability to carry out our mission depends nearly totally on the generosity of benefactors and our dedicated volunteers.
True to our Franciscan heritage, when a need has been uncovered, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen has responded to that need.
