03 Apr Capuchin Soup Kitchen
Once a month the Junior League of Detroit volunteers at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen located in Detroit. We help serve full-course, nutritious meals to hundreds of men, women and children.
Since its inception, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen has depended on the time and efforts of others in the community who share their concern and commitment. Part of Capuchin’s mission is to tend to people’s basic needs, especially the need for food – and the Junior League has been happy to support this mission.
In addition to volunteering at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, the Junior League also recently started to volunteer every month at On The Rise Bakery – a program of the Capuchin Soup Kitchen. The bakers are former prisoners or men who have completed a substance abuse program and are trying to change their lives.
