Our aim is to encourage vulnerable people to stay indoors, get nutritious food to help them stay healthy and have an encouraging moment in their day. This means we are still able to help and support those who have been coming to The Feast regularly, as well as many new people who have been referred to us during the crisis.
The Feast Delivery Service is currently operating three times a week, providing over 300 meals to 150 different people, in Lewisham and North Bromley.
If you would like to know more about The Feast Delivery Service, or can offer help with food preparation or delivery, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are self-referring or making a referral, please send the following information to email@example.com: name, address, contact number, dietary needs (e.g.no pork, vegetarian) and any issues regarding access to your property (does your doorbell work, etc.).
There is no charge for the soup, hot meal and pudding for all who come. In addition to the meal, emergency food packs and housing advice is provided – as well as fun and friendship. After the meal there is a short talk which includes an invitation to the Monday Support Group.
I was introduced to The Feast by a friend who is now in Australia and my week does not feel complete when I can’t go. I like actively doing something for people and The Feast provides an environment where you can get to know people, offer them a warm welcome and listen to them. Sharing food and conversation builds the community and gives people somewhere to be fed both physically and spiritually. It is a very special place. Jenny, Feast volunteer

An update on The Feast by Simon Allen.
Thank you for The Feast food and the lovely flowers. I think it’s really amazing that The Feast goes on no matter what, and it really keeps me going. One of our friends from The Feast we delivered to during lockdown
The food was amazing, very tasty. I am very grateful. Thank you so much. Have a great day. Someone we delivered to who was in desperate need
We aim to make The Feast the safest place for the weakest person. It is an opportunity for people to step out of their poverty. Simon Allen, Jericho Road Project leader
Wonderful – If it weren't for the church I would be dead! Feast attendee
It’s my worship, my gratitude! Cooking helps my own recovery and my mental health – it helps keep me well. Yvonne, Feast volunteer
For me the Feast is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to people truly in need - physically, emotionally, perhaps spiritually - as Jesus did and as we are all called to. Feast volunteer
Given my background and the grace I have been shown, I need The Feast as much as it needs me! Feast volunteer
