What we do
We are a volunteer-led charity in Bristol, running a friendly pop-up service every Thursday evening at Champion Square where we provide a hot meal, snacks, hot drinks and other essentials to those experiencing homelessness.
We believe in much more than handing out hot food. We provide support in the form of reliability, consistency, conversation, kindness and time.
Our project started up in January 2019, and we operate with around 40 experienced (and amazing!) volunteers.
Like many organisations, we've had to change how we do things due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We enforce all recommended COVID-19 regulations whilst running our service, such as social distancing and wearing masks.
All of the donations we receive go towards directly helping our service users - for instance, we've bought some furnishings for service users that have been successful in securing fixed accommodation in the past. Our funds also go towards making our weekly operation run, such as purchasing ingredients for hot meals and snack bags.
Donations are gratefully received by us and our volunteers and will make a huge difference. Thank you!
We receive so much support from the amazing Bristol community and generous businesses. Some of our regular sponsors include Greggs, Pret, Arthur David and Vegware. Thank you all for your continued support!
We are currently at full capacity for volunteers, however we will do call-outs for additional support if required, on our social media channels and our website. We will also update this information if we are in need of and specific items.
