Our Cup of Tea

Preparing a family meal
for older and homeless friends

What is #OurCupOfTea?

"It is an opportunity for me to feel part of a team of friends I can rely on to make someone smile in London. It's much more than volunteering."

- Emanuela

"It is a time for me to welcome older people and help prepare some lovely hot & healthy food that I know they deserve and need, alongside our company"

- Car

What makes a wonderful Our Cup of Tea? Well, good company and good food of course. Join us as we prepare a free meal for older and homeless friends every month.​

What we do:


  • Prepare lovely food for older friends and friends who live in the street

  • Celebrate their birthdays all together

  • Smile to life and make new friends

  • Enjoy a chat and lovely company!

Our activities have significantly changed due to the COVID-19 emergency.

Part of the greater family of the Community of Sant'Egidio spread throughout the world, the Community of Sant'Egidio in London meets regularly to foster friendship and peace.
