THE PEOPLES KITCHEN
Thanks to one woman’s principles and determination, The People’s Kitchen has been supporting the homeless and disadvantaged in the Newcastle area since 1985.
Spurred on by an article about the death of a homeless man, Alison Kay (then in her 70s) decided to set up an organisation to support those in need. Within a year, Alison had 40 helpers, and they inaugurated the first People’s Kitchen next to the railway arches by Dean Street, offering food, clothes, a warm fire and welcome to anyone who came in peace.
The work was made possible through the generous support of volunteers and sponsors recruited by Alison, and over 30 years later that tradition continues. For her work, Alison received an Honorary Degree from Newcastle University in 1997.
Alison Kay died in 2001, aged 91, but inspired by her example, The People’s Kitchen remains true to her principles; providing ‘friendship and food’ to anyone who needs support. Find out more about The Peoples Kitchen here
