How it began

Michelle Cuthbert set up the Soup Kitchen in Jersey some 19 years ago. What started as a fundraiser with a trestle table selling 5 soups made by friends has grown incredibly.

The Soup Kitchen

Michelle works closely with John Hodge of Shelter and now, each year approximately £12,000 is made to help the homeless locally. Bedford- based businesswoman Emma Garrett, came across the idea and is bringing it to Bedford in the guise of ‘SoupFest’.
