Gennivive Marques, 59, from Chestnut Place says she started her soup kitchen seven years ago after seeing the need in her community.
However, during the Coronavirus lockdown, the demand for food has grown.
She says she feeds about 800 people every Thursday, but would love to be able to do more.
“I run the soup kitchen from my own pocket which makes it hard because I do not get any donations from anywhere,” she says.
She also buys chips and chocolates for the kids and does not turn away anyone.
“I also do not have enough equipment to cook for a large number, but I try my best to feed everyone that comes,” she says.
Marques said they practise social distancing and she has marked it herself with red tape, while everyone who comes to get food must wear a mask.
She gets a lot of messages of gratitude, but says her biggest challenge in running the kitchen is the fact that she is not getting any support with regards to ingredients and equipment.
