This social enterprise component of the Franciscan Center of Baltimore will diversify additional revenue streams, create workforce development opportunities and continue to provide nutritious soups to the current homeless population. As of December 2020, the Franciscan Center had provided more than 300,000 meals to the Baltimore community during the pandemic.
