The highly driven team behind Brixton Soup Kitchen have begun a crowdfunding campaign to buy a van to further help them support the hungry and homeless.

The organisation, led by Solomon Smith, hopes to raise £10,000 in donations before February 18.

The soup kitchen, set up in January last year, is based at Southwyck House and receives about 40 homeless people from all over London every day. They do not only provide hot drinks and food, but also offer support and advice about housing and employment.

A mobile soup kitchen is now needed to reach people who would normally not come into the kitchen.

Solomon Smith, founder and managing director of the Brixton Soup Kitchen, said: “We want to reach out to more homeless people. There are a lot of people around Brixton who do not want to come in to the kitchen because the estate we are based in had a bad reputation in the 80’s.

“We have a lot of clients in Vauxhall, Camden Town and also around Victoria and we want to be able to go to them.”
