The first rule of Dinner Club is to tell everyone about Dinner Club!
The Dinner Club is a Notting Hill Community Church project which feeds the homeless in the community, twice a month. The aim is not only to provide food for homeless people but also for the volunteers to engage with the people and ask them about their lives and being proactive in conversation. We have found that because of this engaging and compassionate environment, the homeless remain in the church talking long after they have been physically fed. Hence, the social interaction of volunteers is key to the success of this project.
