Brixton Soup Kitchen is community space for homeless people or people in desperate need. The Soup Kitchen aspires to provide food, drink and companionship in a warm and friendly environment on a weekly basis. Since that time we have served over 425,000 meals either eaten on site or distributed during food drop offs and outreach sessions.
Since starting the 'Brixton Soup Kitchen' we have received food donations from Pret A Manager, Greggs, Nandos, Satay Brixton, Marks and Spencer’s and media support from The Voice Newspaper, Channel 4 and The South London Press who awarded us with the 'Our Hero's Award' in April 2013 as well as being nominated in the Independent on Sunday’s Happy 100 list and being featured in the Evening Standard’s top 1000 influential list 2015 - 2020.
We have also appeared in a number of national programs including Surprise Surprise and BBQ Champ 2015. The word about the good work at 'Brixton Soup Kitchen' has been spreading which would not have been possible without the support we receive from our volunteers and unpaid staff members.
The soup Kitchen is now is working towards becoming a recognised support centre for the community as a whole. It is hoped that extra facilities can be added to the already popular centre including job searching support, advice on housing and benefits and a night shelter for those in dire need. However in order to achieve this, a lot of support will be needed.
