Our main aim is to provide healthy and nutritious meals, as well as toiletries, clothing and sleeping bags to London’s homeless. Moreover, we also offer to our beneficiaries art as well as I.T. and life skills classes. That is because we firmly believe that everyone deserves a second chance to rebuild their lives.
Rhythms of Life is a secular homeless charity, founded in 2008 by Andrew Faris. A former rough-sleeper himself, he strongly felt not only that his fellow friends needed some help, but also, and most importantly, that this help could have been much more effective if provided by someone who deeply understood their daily struggles and needs.
As a result of Andrew’s perseverance and commitment, and with the invaluable help of our partners and volunteers, Rhythms of Life has been able to nourish London’s rough-sleepers every day of the year over the last nine years.
The food that we provide is donated to us by our charity partners, which include: Whole Foods, Eat, Coffee Island, Sainsbury’s, Abokado. As firm believers in the motto ‘lead by example’, we strive to promote sustainability not only by collecting surplus food but also by cooking from scratch whenever possible in order to avoid food waste.
