New Arrangements - From 26 March 2020
All people who are sleeping rough or have declared themselves homeless have now been taken off the streets and located within at least 3 city centre hotels. Many charities and other like minded organisations plus restaurants have pledged to provide food for the 100 individuals who are now staying at these locations. As a result Peterborough Soup Kitchen are working together with the Three Pillars charity to provide breakfast bags, every day of the week, and lunch bags at weekends. Teams of Soup Kitchen volunteers are now preparing the above bags and delivering them to the hotel sites whilst complying with the social distancing requirements introduced by the government.
In addition Peterborough Soup Kitchen are providing food to 17 homeless individuals who are housed in Bed & Breakfasts across the city and to organisations, such as the Salvation Army and the Open Door Church, to top up their dwindling food supplies.
We are also providing emergency parcels for any individual who is struggling to obtain supplies of food.
Suspension of Operations
It is with great regret and a heavy heart, that the Peterborough Soup Kitchen Trustees have come to the decision to suspend operations temporarily, due to the current conditions regarding the Coronavirus pandemic.
We are currently in communication with Peterborough City Council and the police, to see if we can come to an agreement regarding serving food to our clients, and resolving the safety and legal issues we currently face.
We would like to thank you for your loyalty during this period and we hope to restart operations as soon as possible, once we have arrangements in place to ensure the safety of our volunteers and our clients.
If you have any questions regarding the soup kitchen please feel free to get in touch with any of the PSK Trustees via this website or through the Facebook, Twitter and Linked In at the bottom of this page.
Please stay safe, and we will be in touch as soon as we have any further news.
