Soup Kitchens

Serve with us at the Hope Clinic or the Ronald McDonald House.

These organizations are dedicated to making a real difference in the lives of the homeless and families with sick children. They provide shelter, meals, and services that not only alleviate immediate hardships but also empower individuals to strive for economic self-sufficiency and secure, affordable housing. The Ronald McDonald Houses, in particular, offer a lifeline to families with sick children, enabling them to stay close to their little ones during these challenging times.

Serving in this ministry enables you to “Show Them His Love” by putting your hands and feet into action as you serve and encourage those who are lonely, hurting, or rejected. Our teams register and are then scheduled by each organization. They are asked to assist in set-up, cooking/preparing food, serving, and cleaning up. Check out the schedule and age requirements for these opportunities below.

Hope Clinic, Ypsilanti
We serve the 1st Saturday of each month; Children must be 8+ years old.

Ronald McDonald House (RMH), Ann Arbor
One Saturday each month, we participate in RMH Ann Arbor’s program, The Baking Buddies. Adults and students 16+ years old or younger can join in if their parent(s) accompany them. They meet in Ann Arbor from 10a until 12 noon and bake for the families staying at their facility. The group decides what they want to bake (cookies, muffins, brownies, etc.) and supplies the materials. Baked goods can be made from a box or scratch. The RMH kitchen has mixing bowls, measuring spoons/cups, and baking pans. Baking Buddies is limited to eight volunteers at a time. Please complete the Interest Form below, and the Coordinator will contact you.

Ronald McDonald House, Detroit
We provide a meal on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 10a-12p. Each volunteer is assigned a food category (Example: Entrée, Dessert, Salad, Snack) and brings an item of their choice, homemade or store-bought, from the assigned category. Approximate cost per volunteer is $15-$20. Together, volunteers package meals for guests to take to the hospital or enjoy after a long day at the hospital with their sick child. Children 5+, family, and friends are welcome. Please let us know if you are interested below.
