Story

Our "Feed a Friend for a Fiver" campaign helps bring some much needed festive cheer this Christmas to vulnerable and homeless people in the North East.

The demand for The People's Kitchen services has dramatically increased. Behind the scenes, over 300 volunteers prepare and cook meals, manage supplies and most importantly, offer a friendly listening ear to our Friends. Around 250-300 meals are prepared and served every day, with Christmas Day being no exception.

We rely entirely on the generosity and good will of the public, local businesses and communities, who donate both food and money. No government funding is received, and we are exclusively volunteer led.

For many people, The Peoples Kitchen is not only a place to receive a hearty meal but also a sanctuary where they can receive unconditional friendship in a caring environment and benefit from the charity's signposting to welfare, medical and housing services.

The "Feed a Friend for a Fiver" campaign asks the kind-hearted North East public to donate five pounds to provide a free hot Christmas dinner to someone less fortunate than themselves. It will also help to fund many more meals throughout the cold winter period.

We now provide more meals than ever before and with the rising cost of living we also need more donations to ensure that we can continue to help those people in the city who desperately need our help. We know life is tough for more people than ever this year, so anything that you can give will be especially poignant this Christmas and will make a massive difference to someone less fortunate

About the charity

We are a non judgemental charity. We serve 250-300 hot meals a day, 365 days a year. We also provide clothing and bathroom facilities. We are 100% volunteer led & we receive no government funding. We rely on the generosity of the public to be able to support those less fortunate than ourselves.
