What does GOYA Inc. do?
GOYA Inc. is a mobile soup kitchen and food re-distribution organization serving the Downriver and Detroit area. Most people living on the streets did not ask to be put there, and in most cases, not only do they not have a hot meal to eat, they do not have a readily accessible mode of transportation. GOYA Inc. takes warm meals to those who need them most.  GOYA Inc. is also a mobile food re-distribution service. We live in tough economic times and sometimes, we all need a little help. When someone contacts GOYA Inc. for food assistance, GOYA Inc. puts together non-perishable groceries and delivers them to requesting person's door step - free of charge.
