About Twist and their Mission statement:
The greatness of a nation is measured by how well it treats the weakest members of its society, not the strongest. My name is Oliver Williams and I am the founder of the Twist Soup Kitchens Galway, Athlone, Roscommon, Sligo and Tuam. When I was 15 years old I left Galway in times similar to now in terms of recession and high unemployment. I went to England to seek my fortune but found myself on the streets alone and frightened. I was lucky to find a place called centrepoint in Soho where I received a hot meal, a bed, and some good advice that paved the way for me to become firstly a panel beater, then mechanic and eventually a helicopter and airplane pilot.
This experience gave me the inspiration to open up the first soup kitchen in Galway. I have never forgot the feeling of being alone and uncared for by society and the crucial helping hand that was centerpoint. I shudder to think what would have happened to me without that help. The Twist outlets have been a total success and we are now feeding over 1,000 people every week. Twist survives on the kindness and goodwill of the Irish people. What we do is give the more needy members of Irish society a hand up rather than a hand out. We are now setting up a food delivery service to those in need and in particular the new poor that are saddled with debt in this country. I am asking you to look into your heart and help me to help them. I am doing my very best to make sure the forgotten members of our society are no longer alone and uncared for. It could be you some day.
Twist soup kitchens kindly request Irish companies to donate any tight dated food or any overstock of product to this cause.
