Curious about what happens at one of Muswell Hill’s best kept secrets? Martin Stone, and the rest of the Soup Kitchen team will be running tours where you will be taken from St James Square, to the Baptish Church in Dukes Avenue where you can see the soup kitchen in action and offered some tasty soup and a roll.
The soup kitchen started in February 1994 in response to several people asking for food following the worship services. Muswell Hill Churches & Community Soup Kitchen is located at the Baptist Church but staffed by volunteers from several local churches and the wider community.
It is open five nights a week, Sunday through Thursday. Doors open 7.45pm-8.30pm. We normally serve a two course meal to between about 40 people each night, a total of 8,000 meals a year.
Not all their guests are homeless. They all have needs that cause them to come for the shared meal together at the soup kitchen. Their age range is from teenagers to pensioners. They do not provide any counselling services. They do offer friendship, spiritual support and encouragement toward all the appropriate professional services available.
They are very grateful to the many organisations, schools and individuals that support this outreach. If you can help in any way please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
