The founder of the Twist soup kitchens will open a kitchen in Dundalk, The Dundalk Democrat can reveal.
Ex-helicopter pilot Oliver Williams told the paper that he was looking to expand the soup kitchen service that he stated in Galway.
“We’ve been looking at the possibility of opening in Dundalk for some time”, said Oliver,.
“I have been contacted by individuals and organisations in Dundalk who have looked for my help. “
He went on to explain that he believes a lot of local people are in difficulty at the moment and so the arrival of Twist Soutp Kitchens in the town will be a welcome addition,
“It is one of the largest towns in Ireland and I understand that a lot of people are struggling in the area at the moment.
“We provide over 2,500 meals a week across the country and we look forward to bringing the service to Dundalk.”
The soup kitchen is expected to open in the coming months. An exact location for the service has yet to be determined, although Oliver says that it will be in the centre of the town.
Twist Soup Kitchens do not receive any Government funding and is operated by donations and the good will of local people and businesses.
The service also caters for everybody, not just the homeless. “It also welcomes single parents and those who have lost their jobs, or anyone who is in need, hungry or just wants to have a chat.”
