How you can get involved


Every person working at The People’s Kitchen is doing so voluntarily and we are always looking for new people to join us. Volunteering is fun, rewarding and provides loads of benefits such as developing new skills and meeting some great people.

Leave a Legacy

Many people find it comforting to know that they can continue helping others after their death. By leaving a gift to The People’s Kitchen in your will, you will be supporting us in the longer term and help us to continue to be there for our Friends in the future.

Donate supplies

It’s not just financial donations that are needed by The People’s Kitchen. We collect and distribute nearly-new clothing, bedding and brand new sleeping bags to our Friends, to make life on the street a little bit warmer. Right now, The People’s Kitchen is in enormous need of nearly new sleeping bags and rucksacks.

“Some of the Friends have actually said that when they are desperate, just having somebody who will listen to them, take an interest in them is important. They really need somewhere like The People’s Kitchen.”

Volunteer, The People’s Kitchen

‘It’s absolutely remarkable to have a service that’s completely managed by volunteers, that works with a group of people to whom public attitudes are ambivalent and no matter what the weather is, whatever time of day it is, volunteers get here and deliver”
