The Soup Run operates 365 days of the year with more than 100 volunteers delivering support on Dublin’s streets.
Today’s Soup Run is modelled on the work of the founding volunteers who began delivering soup, sandwiches and support to Dublin’s homeless population in 1969.
Today, more than 100 part-time volunteers walk the streets in all weather offering soup, sandwiches, tea and a friendly face to people sleeping rough on Dublin’s streets.
This service is funded by donations and our Soup Run volunteers are often the first point of contact for people experiencing homelessness. This service creates a link into homelessness support services, a first step in rebuilding lives.
