St. Leo’s Soup Kitchen

Bloomfield Hills Model High School students in the Contemporary Issues in Sociology class working at St. Leo’s Soup Kitchen in Detroit.

The essence of this experience is two-fold. First, it gives students an opportunity to serve needy residents of Detroit by participating in the daily activities at a soup kitchen.  Students prepare, cook, serve, and clean-up a noon meal for approximately 150 people. Second, it gives the students direct first hand observation of the needs of a community of folks that they may never come face to face with. In addition to helping in the kitchen, students are asked to observe and interview the clients at the soup kitchen. Most important, this experience engages students in their own learning.
