Souper Saturday

Every Saturday from 8am until 1pm at Salvation Army, Niddry Street, Edinburgh



About us

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.

A project of The Station (Regd Charity Number SC047264)


“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
