HIVE Directory: Hot Meals

Free My Meal Portsmouth

This group intends to connect free meals with recipients. We take no responsibility for what is cooked and what is provided. Our aim is simply to connect a meal with hungry humans that may not be able to afford a cooked meal at the present time.

Friday Fridge

Friday Fridge provides hot food and some practical support for those in need. It is a safe place to relax, chat, pray and get guidance.

We're open to all and free of charge so do drop in or find out more at
