Ways You Can Help

The Newbury Soup Kitchen organisers are constantly being asked by the local community how they can help the Newbury Homeless society in the area. The simplest solution was to create an Amazon Wish List.

If you are a Prime Customer of Amazon, don't forget you can send any item direct to Newbury Soup Kitchen, care of Newbury Salvation Army who are open five days a week.

Could you volunteer?

Please contact Newbury Soup Kitchen to offer your support, in whatever capacity. Assistance always welcomed on Thursday Wednesday or Saturday evenings to collect, prepare and serve food. Most volunteers assist on a rota basis if they cannot commit every week.
