The kitchen, at Olive Tree Fellowship in Silver Street, will be open every Friday evening from 6 to 8pm until the end of March.

The free to use soup kitchen will be staffed by volunteers from several different churches in the town.

Theresa Panton, soup kitchen coordinator, said: “It’s something that I have been thinking about for a long time.”

She added that she doesn’t think there are any other provisions of that sort for the homeless people in Ely.

“It’s only one meal a week but hopefully it will help people a little bit. There will be one soup and one main meal available, such as stew and dumplings, chilli or curry”, Theresa added.
