The Feast

The Feast started in 2001, as a place for homeless and vulnerable people to access a three-course hot meal, while also being a safe place in the heart of the Lewisham borough. For the last 20 years, The Feast has not only offered food but has been a place to also find housing, benefit, employment, money and debt support and advice.

In March 2020, The Feast’s in-person meeting had to close. In its place, we ran a hot food delivery service, delivering around 300 meals a week and sending out a total of 20,000 meals from March 2020 – August 2021.

Since restrictions lifted, we have opened our doors again to our regular Wednesday night meal and drop-in service.

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

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, previous 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
