Souper Saturday

Every Saturday from 8.20am until 2pm at Old St Paul's, Edinburgh

“The project started through the volunteering work I did with the Big Issue. I was asked to organise a Friday afternoon soup kitchen for Big Issue vendors (Biggish Soup). However this didn't quite work so I asked St John's if they would let me use the kitchen for a similar service but open to everyone and Souper Saturday was born.” Mark Diver Founder and Chair

The food is a minor part 
of what we do. The social 
interaction is what's unique 
about us: our guests are 
treated as people rather 
than "homeless people"; 
we drink tea from proper 
mugs and not polystyrene; 
we chat as equals.
