Worthing soup Kitchen
Worthing Soup Kitchen started with FareShare in October 2020 at a time when the second UK lockdown meant that a growing number of homeless people in the area had no access to food due to being placed in temporary accommodation with no cooking facilities.
Food is prepped at Cocks Kitchen in Worthing by a team of volunteers and then cooked by the amazing chef and owner Mr Jason Earl to provide evening meals. These are then tubbed up and served by the Worthing Soup Kitchen team from the Worthing Homeless Hub at Saint Claire’s Day Centre.
In addition to the food the project also provides clothing, sleeping bags and advice to the homeless men and women they meet. For many of these vulnerable and socially excluded people it is their only hot meal of the day and their only interaction with others.
Worthing Soup Kitchen also provides around 50 food parcels to families and single people in the area.
Khristina, who runs the project says:
Without FareShare we would be unable to do this as we certainly would not be able to cover the costs incurred to provide our homeless with meals on a daily basis.
I enjoy the range of products that come with FareShare, it has allowed our client group to try things they otherwise may not. It is a diverse selection of products which we look forward to receiving as do our clients.
(FareShare) have taken away so much worry over how to provide food on a daily basis to those in need.
