A decision on whether a soup kitchen can challenge an eviction bid by Waltham Forest Council is expected next week.

The authority ordered the eviction of charity Christian Kitchen, which has been feeding the vulnerable from its base in Mission Grove, Walthamstow, for 20 years, saying it encouraged anti-social behaviour.

The kitchen says it feeds about 50 people every night, including people who are not homeless but have fallen on hard times.

It denies it contributes to anti-social behaviour.

The high court judge will rule on the Kitchen’s application for judicial review on Wednesday.
