Jewish soup kitchen
Group From /1/1854 To 1992
From LMA: Founded January 1854 in Fashion Street, in 1902 it moved to Butler Street, renamed Brune Street in 1937. The building looks to have been purpose built, but only part of it was used for the charity work. The main source of funds was from the rental of the rest of the property.
Until WW2 it really did dispense just soup but rationing brought that to an end; bread and groceries were dispensed instead and what had been the kitchen space was rented out. It closed in 1992 and the services were merged with those at Jewish Care in Beaumont Grove. The building in Brune Street was converted to flats.
Some websites say that this was originally based in Leman Street but PortCities says that was the Poor Jews' Shelter.
