Christchurch Soup Kitchen
Make a Difference Today
“Truly I tell you; whatever you do for the least of these, you do to me”
We are a diverse group of individuals, who's collective heart is to serve and make a difference.
We try to make life a little more bearable for those on the streets.
As well as providing hot nutritious meals we offer clothing, hygiene essentials, a laundry service and a wash & swap service for sleeping bags.
We also help, support and signpost to other agencies and organisations for continued support in specific areas of need.
Meeting people ‘where they’re at’, accepting them ‘for who they are’ and offering a listening ear’ is an integral part to the hope of future change. Trust is built over time, and with the dedication, commitment and genuine care our team provides, this is something we have had the privilege of experiencing.
Through our various lives and work roles we bring a multitude of experiences that enable us to help or signpost those we support. Many of the volunteers have been involved with soup kitchens, drug/alcohol services, homeless organisations, social services, supporting offenders move away from crime, legal services and other relevant organisations for a long time, giving us additional insight into some of the needs of our service users.
CSK has full public liability insurance, top 5 star ratings from Environmental Health and all of the people who cook for our service users have level 2 food safety certificates accompanied by mandatory allergen training.

This is updated monthly with items we currently require.
£5 A Month
We are asking if people could donate by setting up a standing order for £5 a month. If 100 people did this we would have an additional £500 a month coming in to support what we do.
Of course, we understand some people prefer to make a one-off donation, for which we are also very grateful. Thank you.
We are a registered charity and get no statutory funding, so rely solely on the incredible support of the community.

"Most people never really sat down and got to know a homeless person, but every homeless person is just a real person that was created by God and it is the same kind of different as us; they just have a different story."
