About the event
Each week our volunteers prepare up to 200 hot meals, fresh fruit and hot drinks. Preparation of the food begins early on Friday afternoon, cooking and boxing up the hot meals, bagging the fruit in individual portions and filling flasks with tea and coffee.
We then head out onto the street, to Strand and Waterloo, where other volunteers will join us. Our team then shares the food and drinks and provides a listening ear and a word of encouragement to the rough sleepers who gather each week. We serve food to whoever needs a hot meal.
We believe in showing the love of God through provision to those in need and that every person needs sustenance for both body and soul. We minister by providing good food and (if desired) by prayer for healing, for release from addiction and other adverse circumstances, or simply by providing a sympathetic ear to those who society has cast out.
Our outreach is usually concluded by a time of worship on the street, joined by rough sleepers, other churches with a heart for the homeless, and even by passers-by.
