Having produced hot meals for those in need for years the Halil İbrahim Soup Kitchen’s cauldrons continue to boil for citizens in need on cold winter days, on behalf of the Ümraniye Municipality.
Having made welfare governing its principle, the Ümraniye Municipality continues in aiding families in need, living in the municipality, at every opportunity. Opened in 2006, the Halil İbrahim Soup Kitchen provides warm meals to 170 homeless families in need in modern and healthy conditions.
Bringing warm meals to homes in need no matter what the circumstances, the Ümraniye Municipality Soup Kitchen teams continue their job in the early hours of the morning for the homeless and poor people in the harsh weather conditions of winter.
Food will not be the case that states that everyone, municipal teams are extending a helping hand to the condition that the necessary investigations, delivers around 500 meals every day to every neighbourhood in Ümraniye. Everyday municipality teams, upon conducting the proper investigations, lend a hand and transport nearly 500 meals to those who have indicated that they are unable to make food in Ümraniye’s every neighbourhood.
At the same time, having adopted the motto of being by the side of its citizens during their hard days, the meals distributed by the Ümraniye Municipality's funeral services also come from the hands of Halil İbrahim Soup Kitchen’s cooks. Working on a rotational schedule seven days a week, the funeral dinner teams do not leave citizens alone on these bitter days and carry out neighbour duties as well.
