Christian Kitchen has been ordered by Waltham Forest council to move on from its Walthamstow home
The charity which runs a soup kitchen threatened with eviction is to host a Christmas dinner followed by a public protest.
Christian Kitchen has supplied hot meals to the homeless every night for more than 20 years at Mission Grove in Walthamstow.
It is currently in a legal dispute with Waltham Forest Council, which is attempting to evict the soup kitchen from the site.
The charity has won permission to seek a judicial review of the council's decision.
The authority wants to move the service to a lay-by near the North Circular, but the charity says the location is unsuitable.
A fundraising dinner will be held at the Blackhorse Road Baptist Church in Walthamstow on Friday at 7.30pm.
Volunteers and donations are wanted for the evening.
Then, at midday on December 21, they are organising a public protest in Walthamstow Town Square, where there will be carols, speeches and a petition to sign.
See the group’s Facebook page, Christian Kitchen in Walthamstow, for details.
