Formed in 1992 the Ipswich Soup Kitchen has been running a nightly outreach programme for the homeless and needy within the town.
We encounter a vast range of people with many different needs. The homeless, those struggling with money, mental health, addictions are just a few of the issues we come across.
The services provided are food, soup, hot drinks and just general company.
In addition the Soup Kitchen works with many other local organisations that can offer the support that we cannot. We have an NHS health Outreach Team that comes down twice a week and The Samaritans twice a month.
The volunteer army that makes all this possible is now 200+ strong and growing. These are folk from all walks of life that give up an evening every fortnight.
