Meal Leaders from amongst the volunteers organise and lead an event and provide steer on the event day to all other volunteers these are the back bone in delivering the meal event.
FOCUS and STRUCTURE OF THE EVENING
Our focus as an organisation is to provide rough sleepers of Central London with a quality dining experience. Our chef's prepare a warm nutritious 2 course meal and our volunteers provide table service to our guests. Conversation is had among all those involved. Everyone that participates in one of our evenings, (guest and volunteers alike), has a very enjoyable evening.
Our volunteers come from all over London and its outskirts. They are all from different backgrounds, which gives us a very diverse pool of volunteers. We are always interested in hearing from anyone who wishes to volunteer at an event.
We offer a safe and secure event for our guests to relax, where they are treated with dignity and respect.
Each meal offers a new opportunity for mental stimulus which might include quizzes, puzzles or music, but they always include conversation.
We started providing meals to rough sleepers and vulnerably housed in 2008
We have provided 2 Saturday evening meals each month since our inception
We serve over 2000 meals per year
