Hope for Food

Hope for Food logo

Hope for Food is a local charity based in Bournemouth set up and run entirely by Volunteers. The organisation was founded by Claire Matthews in 2012 with the aim of providing life's basic essentials on a day to day basis to people in need of help due to the current economic climate.

Hope for Food's mission is to assist men, women and children in Bournemouth and the surrounding areas, who are either homeless or living in poverty, by providing fresh food at our soup kitchens and hampers of food, good quality clothing, bedding and household goods, where needed. We aim to preserve the dignity of those we help and treat everyone with the utmost respect, without judgement. We help anyone who reaches out to us in need.

Our volunteers prepare fresh soup, a variety of hot meals, a selection of sandwiches and cake and bring them to our soup kitchen to serve fresh. We also serve hot tea and coffee and a cold drinks.
