Supporting the Friends of Di’s Kitchen

We’re continuing our support for the work of the Friends of Di’s Kitchen a local charity, operating out of the home kitchen of one of its selfless volunteers, that is helping to feed people in need across the city of Wolverhampton.

The charity is named in honour of Di Henry who, before her passing, ran Tab’s Kitchen, a soup kitchen based at The Tabernacle Baptist Church in Whitmore Reans. Di passed away in 2018, but some of the volunteers who worked with her were determined to continue her good work.

The Friends of Di’s Kitchen now serves nutritious three course meals and distributes food bags to families each week as well as providing emotional support to those in need. Since 2020 over 88,000 meals have been prepared and delivered – with 33,470 people helped in 2023 alone.

In the run up to Christmas we made a donation to the charity which helped them distribute over 800 Christmas meals to their guests and following the success of our Christmas collections we have now been able to donate a further pallet of food which has been used to help feed families over the half term period.

The Friends of Di’s Kitchen are a great example of the power of volunteering and the difference it can make to the people of Wolverhampton
