Homeless and the poor
Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People
Over 40 years ago, Brother Kevin Crowley founded the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People in Bow Street, Dublin. From its very humble beginnings in the Friary garden it now provides over 700 meals each day and over 1500 food parcels each Wednesday to the homeless and poor of Dublin. In addition to this the Centre provides a medical service (doctor, dentist, chiropodist and nurse), counselling and shower facilities.

The Friary Food Project, Kilkenny
Opened in 2014, the Friary Food Project, Kilkenny, provides food parcels each Tuesday to the poor and homeless of Kilkenny City. An outreach of the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People, the project currently provides up to 200 parcels each week. Involvement of the local community is very important to any Capuchin ministry and the people of Kilkenny have come to help pack and distribute the parcels.
