The charity, which is supported by Nandos, ASOS, and Human Appeal, was surprised to have served more than 30 people on the launch day.

"We usually expect about 10 on the first day," said Jon Glackin, founder. "There is a big need for a service like this in Kilburn. There is a lot of hidden homelessness in Kilburn. People hide and sleep in out of sight places because the streets are not safe..

"It's extremely disappointing that people have to sleep outside of empty buildings at night."

Streets Kitchen will be in Kilburn High Road from 7.30pm to 9pm every Friday.
