Manna Community Meal

Manna Community Meal is a soup kitchen in the city of Detroit that was started in 1976. It is located on the lower level of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church (through the red door) but is directly linked and affiliated with Day House Catholic Worker. Manna Meal is co-sponsored by St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church. The soup kitchen is co-managed by Tom Lumpkin, Priest at Day House, and Marianne Arbogast. Its mission is to offer sanctuary from the harsh realities of the street and to foster human dignity.

Manna Community Meal is committed to serving the Corktown community in Detroit by providing a free, hot meal five days a week to some 200 people who are not able to provide for themselves. Many of the guests are homeless and out of work. Many suffer from mental illness. Manna Community Meal encourages safety in the neighborhood by prohibiting drugs and violence in and around the soup kitchen.
