Brixton Soup Kitchen is a grassroots organisation helping homeless people and Londoners in need. It was founded by Solomon Smith, a youth worker and lifelong Brixtonian, when he realised that there was a desperate need for such an organisation. 

Since starting in January 2013, over 10,000 meals have been served to those in need.
