to support The People’s Kitchen
All donations, whether in cash, in time, or in goods are directed to our clients; we have no payroll overheads and pay no expenses to any of our volunteers. As a consequence, we are one of the most efficient charities in the country with high returns on your investment.
We’ve been in operation since 1985 and have a proven track record of supporting the vulnerable and homeless in and around Newcastle. As a result, we represent an effective and proven way for donors to ensure their funds help those in need.
Over 1,100 sources, including large corporations, regional foundations, local businesses, churches, schools and community groups right through to individuals all support us in any way they can, recognising us as a trusted partner.
The charity does not receive public funding and relies entirely on the goodwill of business and the community to finance its essential services.
We’re seeing record levels of demand – linked to the current economic climate, unemployment levels and changes to the welfare system.
