The Compassion Soup Kitchen dining room needs new chairs to continue to provide our service in a dignified way to those that need it most.

Wellington

The Compassion Soup Kitchen provides a two hot meal service for the homeless, those suffering from addictions, those who face mental health challenges, the unemployed and economically challenged and those just released from jail – pretty much anyone who needs some kai and a safe and hospitable place to meet friends and share a meal together. Between 100 and 120 people come for breakfast and dinner each day, six days a week. This means our chairs are well-used to say the least!

The kaupapa of the kitchen is to treat all our guests with dignity. In the words of Soup Kitchen founder Suzanne Aubert, ‘For all creeds and none’ and all who pass through our doors are treated with respect and compassion without discrimination, honouring their dignity and mana.

To do this we provide a welcoming, safe and friendly dining room for our whānau. Our dining room is as much of a home as some of them have and providing a full dining room service being served bread, dessert, tea and coffee at their dining table by dedicated staff and volunteers means so much to them.

Our chairs are not only a crucial dining room furnishing but contribute to making our guests feel dignified. Because of this, we need to replace our current well-worn and mismatched chairs with modern and sturdy chairs that will stand the test of time.

You can help us with purchasing these new chairs for us to continue to provide the whānau with hot meals in a homely environment. We would also like to replace our plant stands and improve the overall appearance and warmth of our dining room.

About us

We provide support to Wellingtonians doing it tough by serving two hot meals a day, six days a week, and providing access to other services with a kaupapa of respect and dignity for all.

Use of funds

We want to purchase 60 new chairs for our dining room. Surplus funds will go towards other furnishings such as plant stands.
