Solomon Smith & Dr. Mahamed Hashi Brixton Soup Kitchen The Soup Kitchen was founded in January 2013 by Solomon Smith and Mahamed Hashi, two lifelong Brixtonian who identified the essential need for such a space for homeless people and those in need.
Soup Kitchen is community space for homeless people or people in desperate need. The Soup Kitchen aspires to provide food, drink and companionship in a warm and friendly environment on a weekly basis. Since that time we have served over 25,000 meals either eaten on site or distributed during food drop offs and outreach sessions.
Since starting the Brixton Soup Kitchen we have received food donations from Pret A Manager, Greggs, Nandos, Satay Brixton, Marks and Spencer’s and media support from The Voice Newspaper, Channel 4 and The South London Press who awarded us with the Our Hero's Award 39; in April 2013 as well as being nominated in the Independent on Sunday’s Happy 100 list and being featured in the Evening Standard’s top 1000 influential list 2015.
We have also appeared in a number of national programs including Surprise Surprise and BBQ Champ 2015.
