Soup Kitchen Volunteer

?A souper way to get involved with the Finsbury Park community?

We run a Soup Kitchen based at St John’s the Evangelist, Brownswood Park (the Hackney bit of Finsbury Park!). To keep this project running we are looking for UCL students who live in the area to volunteer a few hours of their time on a Tuesday evening.

There is a mix of volunteering opportunities available, depending on what you want to take on, from serving soup at the weekly soup kitchen to getting involved in co-ordinating the project.

Cooking or Hosting Volunteers


FoodCycle takes food that would have been thrown in the bin but is perfectly good to eat into a three course meal for people in our community. We tackle food poverty and loneliness by getting communities together to eat a healthy vegetarian meal. If you like getting creative, eating good food and having a chat then this is the opportunity for you!

Shop Trolley Volunteer


Cheerful volunteers needed to work with another volunteer to take the shop trolley to the wards, selling items from the WH Smith shop trolley to patients, staff and visitors. Need to be reliable, friendly, confident with handling small change and happy to walk around a busy hospital. Trolley leaves at 930 am and is back for 12 noon.

Food Events Volunteer


Volunteers needed for food events!

Action Against Hunger is enthusiastically supported by top chefs, food writers, a multitude of restaurants, hotels and other food outlets, as well as food-lovers across Britain, who all unite to raise funds for our life-saving programmes around the world.

We attend food festivals and events throughout the year to fundraise and to continue to spread the word about our Love Food Give Food campaign and our programmes to new potential supporters.
