A Real Meal London
London’s only on street soup station
“we feed anyone who is hungry”
In the last 6 years A ReaL MeaL has now served over 95,000 hot meals to the homeless communities of Melbourne
“We are not a soup kitchen, we are a soup station, meals served with love to anyone that’s hungry-Rather than providing a meal, we share a hot meal with our friends on the street”
‘A Real MeaL’ is more than providing hot food to the marginalized communities of Melbourne, we aim to create friendships, build trust and give the most important thing one can give…. our time. “Time Caring”as we call it – is something that we all so easily take for granted in our busy day to day lives filled with appointments and friends, but for our friends on the street, the time of day can be the most valuable thing to share with another and equally the one thing that is missed the most.
All to often we pass someone on the street, down on their luck, begging, just to get by each day, it’s easy and not our fault that sometimes we must keep going without stopping, and we now it’s even hard sometimes to even acknowledging these people them as we pass them by on our way to the next meeting or commitment, it may bring up emotions and feelings we may not be able to understand, feeling helpless, sad and confused, not knowing what to do or say to help this person.
This is why we are here… Together we can give the time of day to those that society so easy forgets about and walks by. “Time caring”
This goal is only achieved through the weekly support of our warm, friendly and genuine ‘TBU family volunteers’. A ReaL MeaL differentiates itself from other soup kitchen programs because we are 100% funded and 100% run by volunteers, thus meaning that we are self sustainable and don’t rely on any external funding from governments or take any of the much needed community funding. We are 100% funded by YOU, the community that cares enough to stop and offer support.

Team building activities are essential in creating a closely-knit, happy and productive A-team. But what activities EXACTLY are team building activities? Which are the most effective (and low cost, low time-consuming) ones? We believe the best team building activities…
Reimagining food waste for an audience of savvy gastronomes demands serious creativity and resourcefulness. So it’s a good thing the folk behind the inaugural Yume Hour have deployed some of our city’s finest to take on the mission.
