Soup attracts more than rough sleepers

    A “soup summit” was held by Westminster Council this week after
    research revealed that the vast majority of soup run users are not
    rough sleepers.

    Researchers were told of one man who was using soup runs to help
    him save up for a football season ticket and found one agency that
    said it would feed taxi drivers if they wanted food.

    Westminster Council wants to cut the numbers of soup runs as it
    argues that they bring people into the city to obtain services and
    pull accommodated people back onto the street.
