We’re very excited to have all our volunteers and whānau back inside!
It was a great morning. At 7:20 am on that Tuesday, April 26th, the ﬁrst guests gathered outside the Compassion Soup Kitchen to wait and enjoy breakfast in the dining room, which was reopening its doors after eight months.
Inside, our fantastic staff and volunteers were preparing everything for our whānau, who started to enter and receive their breakfast around 7:45 am.
Opening the dining room again was a great joy. It was long months and a big challenge for the Soup Kitchen, who despite the Covid-19 restrictions, never stopped the work and continued to deliver food, albeit in the form of takeaway. Despite the difﬁculties, our whānau arrived every day to collect their meal.
This is why we celebrate the opening of the dining room as an opportunity to meet and share again and to be able to help in a wider way all those who need it the most
And so we will continue, from Monday to Saturday, offering breakfast service between 7.45 am and 8.45 am, and dinner between 4.45 pm and 5.45 pm.
Thanks to our wonderful staff and volunteers who worked hard to get everything ready and those who are supporting us to provide for those who need it most at the Soup Kitchen.
