Brixton Soup Kitchen appeals for funds to help continue its work.

Brixton Soup Kitchen (BSK) is continuing to provide food and emergency packs to the homeless, elders and less fortunate families.

Its Covid-19 Response Team was set up as an emergency response when the kitchen had to close its doors to the homeless and other people it had been helping.

Throughout lockdown, BSK has been providing them with meal packs that include face masks as well as hand sanitiser thanks to the London homeless charity Hearts and Helpers.

BSK delivers 150-200 grocery bags/boxes and more than 500 prepared meals each week. It also makes weekly phone calls and supportive contact for over 100 people.

The number of food parcels BSK delivers increases every week. Throughout the lockdown, BSK has been getting a lot of referrals from councils, the NHS, social workers, police and, most of all, social media.

Because of the pandemic, many of BSK’s funders’ and supporters’ donations stopped.

People who can, are able to help through a funding appeal specifically for BSK’s Covid-19 Response Team.

We really need your support. By donating whatever you can, you can help us to continue our work that we love to do,” said BSK.
