Refettorio Felix at St Cuthbert’s

Feeding body
and soul

Refettorio Felix at St Cuthbert’s is a vibrant community kitchen and drop-in centre located in Earl’s Court.

It offers a welcoming lunchtime food service to vulnerable members of the local community from Monday to Friday, creating delicious three-course meals from surplus ingredients that would otherwise be wasted.

As well as providing a transformative lunch service, the centre offers counselling sessions, washing facilities, housing and job searching assistance and structured creative activities.

By infusing the Refettorio with art and design, we want to engage guests in a holistic approach to nourishment: feeding body and soul.

The gesture of sitting down to a meal and breaking bread together is the first step toward rebuilding dignity and creating community.

The dining service Refettorio Felix was launched at St Cuthbert’s Centre on 5 June 2017.

During its six-week opening, a list of high-profile guest chefs volunteered in the kitchen, helping to transform surplus ingredients into delicious multi-course dishes, served to guests at the table by a team of staff and volunteers.

Guest chefs continue to volunteer their time to the Refettorio on a bi-monthly basis.

More than 50 chefs have cooked here so far…
