A tent is pitched just outside of Food for the Soul, a local non-profit providing FREE food every week for people in need.

“I didn’t realize after coming here for so many years how many people in this community were hungry and homeless.”
– Detroit resident, Cynthia Houchins

Cynthia Houchins is one of those people. Every week, she and others line up outside of the building in the east side Detroit neighborhood to take home FREE food for their families.

“I come and I get food and it helps me survive, my family and I through the week and we’ve got the food to eat with and the means to take care of ourselves.”
– Cynthia Houchins

Food for the Soul is headed by Pastor Yvette Griffin of Pilgrim Baptist Church. She is providing food for the soul for Detroiters in more ways than one.

“Our mission is to embrace and enhance the lifestyles for all the residents in the city of Detroit. We distribute food in here. What we do is we pack boxes. We serve at least 300 families a week.”
– Pastor Yvette Griffin

With help from volunteers they pack up FREE food that has been donated. Each family gets a number, then a box of food for the week. Pastor Griffin has been doing this every week for the past 12 years.

“Thank you so much for helping us! I truly appreciate it! It means so much to everybody in the community and I thank God for her.”
– Cynthia Houchins
