Meal Programs

Thirty million Americans are affected by hunger. One in five children go hungry every month.  Hunger affects how people perform at work, how children perform in school, and how people view their communities and their lives. Last year we served almost 200,000 meals to the residents of Genesee and Shiawassee Counties. Our programs provide vital support to the communities we serve, giving them not only a hot meal, but also relief from the cold and a place to socialize.

The Adopt-A-Day Program is an opportunity for businesses, churches, schools, organizations,  families, and individuals to sponsor the meals served at Catholic Charities Soup Kitchens for a specific day. A day can be sponsored in honor of an individual, organization, business or to celebrate a meaningful day or anniversary.


Adopting a day at Catholic Charities’ Soup Kitchens helps generate revenue to cover meal costs, allowing us to save money in case of occasional food shortages. Adopt-A-Day sponsors receive a certificate and recognition on the “Wall of Honor,” as well as on Catholic Charities’ social media sites.

Sponsorships are available for the North End, Center for Hope, and South Flint Soup Kitchens. The cost to Adopt-A-Day at the North End Soup Kitchen is $500. The cost to Adopt-A-Day at the Center for Hope or South Flint Soup Kitchens is $250. Sponsors are also invited to volunteer on the day of their sponsorship! Sponsors may choose to designate their day on an important holiday, a special anniversary, or in honor of a loved one.
