Easter Soup Kitchen

SoupKitchenPoster2016

Last year, in partnership with The Salvation Army in South Wimbledon, Food Relief UK were able to feed over 50 homeless people with a delicious hot meal. It was a huge success and a day to remember for everyone. For the homeless men and women, they were treated to a table served hot meal featuring rice, naan bread and a selection of curries that was sourced from one of the most popular restaurants in Tooting.

InshaAllah, we are hoping to do the same again on the bank holiday Easter Monday 28th March 2016 from 12.00 to 14.30. This time we will be serving upstairs in the MICC community hall.

We are also requesting for volunteers who can help out on the day to get in touch with us on 07982 707166 or email info@foodrelief.org.uk. Any help will be useful as we need volunteers to help with a range of roles from setup the hall, serve food, hosting and/or tidying up.
