During these past months there has been significant discussion at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen on the issue of why people are poor, and of the reasons compelling men and women to have to seek out our services. Both the Winter and Spring, 2016, editions of Breaking Bread featured articles related to the topic, and many of you responded with your thoughts and comments. It is clear that there is lively interest in the matter.
For that reason we are pleased to announce a community meeting that will address the issue:
Continuing the Conversation—Moving Towards Equity and Understanding
Saturday, October 8, 2016

Panelists will include representatives from the United Way of Southeast Michigan; Michigan League for Public Policy; Building Movement Detroit Peoples Platform and Mothering Justice.
We are inviting Soup Kitchen staff, clients and donors; community residents, and anyone else interested.
