Capuchin Soup Kitchen serving Detroit for 130 years
In the ongoing effort to help struggling men, women and children in Michigan's cities, there is one group who's been reaching out to the needy for generations.
The Capuchin Soup Kitchen has been in continuous operation on Detroit's East side since the Great Depression of 1929, and the Capuchin friars' ministry in Southeast Michigan goes back even further to 1883. That's 130 years of day-in, day-out work.
