What We Do
Safe Harbor Kitchen is located at 706 Joseph Street, in the Banks District. A meal is served at 6 p.m. each Monday and Tuesday evening. The doors open at 5:30 p.m., and everyone comes in and sits down, there is entertainment provided by kids playing guitar and keyboard and singing songs. At 6 p.m. The volunteers serve everyone that's sitting. They don't have to go up buffet-style, the drinks are brought to them and the meal is brought directly to them. Also, the Safe Harbor Pantry serves over 10,000 pounds of food a month to over 500 families in need. A new program has begun on the 3rd Saturday of every month starting at 10:30 where we distribute 12,000-15,000 pounds of food to over 600 people. We have partnered with the Eastern Food Bank of Michigan to provide this mass food distribution. We receive between 18 and 25 pallets of food, which we are able to distribute to those in need. This puts our total monthly food distribution at over 25,000 pounds! Safe Harbor is committed to providing respect, hospitality and a welcoming space where their spirit can grow. We encourage our volunteers to extend themselves to our guests in whatever ways they are comfortable.
