Story



Vinnie's Drop in Cafe 

Vinnie's drop in Cafe provides FREE home-cooked hot meals, hot drinks and snack to those in need living within the Newcastle / Gateshead area. 

  • We serve meals every Tuesday between 11-2pm we welcome all.
  • As we are a registered charity Vinnie's runs solely on donations. All donations received will go towards providing the ingredients need to produce the meals we serve.


We intend to build on the drop in service to provide

somewhere that people can also get advice and support to alleviate the reasons 

why they have come to us for food. SVP members are on hand to chat to clients, get to know them and gain an understanding of their motivation for coming to us. If necessary, they can complete referrals for emergency food parcels, which we have provided from the Centre for a number of years. We now have computers available, along with free

 wi fi so that people can get on line. As our service 

develops, we hope to be able to have experts available for people to speak to 

about housing advice, debt advice, smoking cessation and other support services, 

so that people can leave us not only with full stomachs but also with robust 

signposting to the support they need.
