North Cambridge Soup Kitchen Opens to the Community
The Karim Foundation’s North Cambridge Soup Kitchen opened its doors for the first time, as local residents enjoyed a hot Sunday meal and pleasant company at the Meadows Community Centre.
Visitors were greeted to a choice of delicious chicken or vegetable soup – and a scrumptious bread roll – served piping hot and freshly cooked by Mill Road convenience store Al-Amin.
“It was lovely to welcome so many people,” said Trustee Shahida Rahman. “The winter months are not far away now, and we hope to continue with offering a safe and friendly space where anyone in Cambridge can join us for a hot meal and feel comfortable here. Everyone is welcome at our North Cambridge Soup Kitchen.”
The North Cambridge Soup Kitchen will run every third Sunday of the month from 11.30am – 1.30pm, and will be open on the following dates:
- 15 October 2023
- 19 November 2023
- 17 December 2023
- 21 January 2024
- 18 February 2024
- 17 March 2024
From October, Masjid Al Ikhlas and Cambridge Islamic Centre will also be supporting this initiative, as Al-Amin continues to provide more hot soup over the coming months.
Many thanks to the wonderful and supportive staff at the Meadows Community Centre for helping us to get up and running.
