Detroit, MI (September 22, 2008) … The Capuchin Soup Kitchen and its urban garden ministry, Earthworks Urban Farm, will be hosting a Harvest dinner, Wednesday, October 29, celebrating the successful growing season of its urban garden.

A social hour in the garden will begin with light appetizers and garden
tours. The dinner will be sourced entirely of local SE Michigan food

“True to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen’s philosophy that one should not have to be privileged to eat well, we are pricing tickets according to ones ability to pay,” Costello explains. “Tickets will be priced $10-$100. The Earthworks Urban Farm is a non-profit ministry. We depend on donations to continue our work. However, in this case, our diners are going to receive a fabulous, locally-grown meal in exchange for their generosity.”
Tickets are available by registering on-line at www.cskdetoirt.org/earthworks or calling 313-579-2100, ext 204. Reservation deadline is October 20.
The Capuchin Soup Kitchen’s Earth Works urban garden yields over 6,000 pounds of produce each season from its three city garden sites and two greenhouses and educates the community in regards to sustainable relationships between human beings and the earth.
Founded in 1929, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen serves Metro Detroit by providing food, clothing, and spiritual counsel to those in need. Frequently preparing and serving 2,000 meals a day, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen also distributes household items and operates a shower program, food pantry, and children’s tutoring and art therapy program.
