- Welcome to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, a ministry of the Capuchin Province of St. Joseph. Inspired by St. Francis of Assisi, we tend to people’s basic needs, especially the need for food. We also stimulate minds, nourish spirits, and attempt to address root causes of social injustice. Founded in 1929 by Capuchin friars Solanus Casey and Herman Buss, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen serves the people of metro Detroit. We welcome you…whether you are a guest in need of a hand up, a volunteer willing to assist, or a donor willing to support. Welcome to our ministry.
Inspired by the life and spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, we:
- tend to people's basic needs, especially the need for food,
- strive to stimulate minds and nourish spirits, and
- work to understand and address root causes of social injustice in our community.
In all we do, we seek to build alliances with others who share a commitment to this vision.
