Free food



This is London’s most comprehensive list of soup kitchens and soup runs, compiled by homeless and ex-homeless people. Thanks to Mark, Richard, Dave, Peter, Ale, Moe, Mark, Paul, Pat, Jay, John, Dave and Rachel.


Others have attempted to write lists of soup kitchens before, but missed out most of them because they’ve never set foot in them.

I’ve also included Sikh temples, where a free vegetarian meal is served in the Langar Hall to all visitors, without distinction of religion, ethnicity or economic status.

This list is a work in progress. I can’t guarantee the information is accurate because I don’t have credit to ring the soup kitchens to check it’s right.

If you’ve spotted any errors, please let me know so I can correct them – if any have closed down or changed their opening times, or if any of the web links no longer work.

Can you be more specific about what food is on the menu?

Do you know any other places where you can get a free meal?

Please leave a message in the comments section below with the soup kitchen or soup run’s name, address, opening times and what kind of food they offer.

Or tweet me

When asked why they needed my full name, they stated it’s to keep track of how many people they have to cater far. More like to keep track of how many weeks they’ve been brainwashing you.

Ask for a meal ticket for a free meal. After charging homeless who are not sleeping rough and ex-homeless £2.50 for food they get donated for free from Felix Project and everybody having to lie they were roughsleepers to get a free meal, St Cuthbert’s have finally changed their policy on their website: “We offer both breakfast and homemade three-course course lunches. This is provided entirely free of charge to rough sleepers and homeless. Those who feel they can contribute are encouraged to make a suggested donation of £2.50 that goes towards the upkeep of the Centre. Each week, we offer an entirely free meal to everyone.” Obviously we don’t “feel we can contribute” £2.50 for food they get for free when we’re on benefit/no benefits and all the other soup kitchens are free. One free hot drink before lunch and another after lunch with meal ticket. Extra hot drinks – coffee 50p, tea 40p, cappuccino 60p.
