To align with safety regulations issued by Newcastle City Council and Northumbria Police, we at The People’s Kitchen have for the time being suspended our daily hot food service. We will continue to offer provisions to other key organisations and will be available to take phone queries to help those most in need.
The council has set up CityLife line which encourages vulnerable people who need help to contact them. We encourage you to contact them if you have any significant needs. Find out more details at www.newcastle.gov.uk/citylifeline or on their helpline
