Who is The Soup Kitchen Charity
The Soup Kitchenwas founded in January 2013 by Solomon Smith and Mahamed Hashi, lifelong Brixtonians, who identified the essential need for such a space for homeless people.
The 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 10,000 meals either eaten on site or distributed during food drop offs and outreach sessions. This could not have been possible without the donations and support from local community members as well as local business.
At the 'Brixton Soup Kitchen' we have had trained professionals come in and deliver one to one consultation sessions with clients to re-house people, assisting people to claim benefits they rightfully deserve as well as back to work training. 'Brixton Soup Kitchen' is not just a service for the homeless, but also members of the community who fall below the poverty line.
Since starting the 'Brixton Soup Kitchen' we have received food donations from Pret A Manager, Greggs, Nandos, Satay Brixton, Marks and Spencers 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. We have also appeared on a number of television shows including Something for nothing, the Chicken shop and most recently Surprise Surprise which was attracted over 6.5 million viewers. The word about the good work at 'Brixton Soup Kitchen' has been spreading and we are receiving approximately 45 visitors per day. This has led to us recently being awarded the Back2Black award at the prestigious Bafta in Piccadilly.
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
