The Soup Kitchen

The Soup Kitchen

Helping the Homeless in Central London

Annapurna have chosen to support the work of The Soup Kitchen on Tottenham Court Road for the second year in a row.  We will be both donating funds and maintaining our monthly volunteering slot working in the kitchen itself.  

By supporting the homeless, marginally homeless and under privileged we are helping to build a more inclusive and stable society for everyone. 

What does the Soup Kitchen do? 

"Our vital service provides huge benefits for both vulnerable individuals and the local community".
