A group of nuns is launching a soup restaurant in London – and plans to give away everything for free.
The Daughters of Divine Charity, a Catholic order based in Norfolk, are swapping rural England for Shoreditch in order to launch the pop-up location, which has been named NUNdos.
According to a press release sent to Business Insider, the location will be the world’s first ever nun-powered eatery. It is due to run for three days.
As well as feeding passers-by, the nuns will attempting to highlight the malaise of millennial life.
Diners will be encouraged to take part in “soul searching activities” in order to raise awareness for the increasing levels of anxiety facing people under 35. NUNdos will discourage diners from Instagramming their food, and will install an amnesty box for phones by the door.

Sisters will be on hand at NUNdos to chat to the crowds about daily life and their current worries or stresses.
As well as chicken and lentil soup, the nuns will also hand out apple pies for dessert.
The pop-up, running from Tuesday 17 October to Thursday 19 October at the White Rabbit, Shoreditch, is being filmed for a new Channel 5 series, “Bad Habits: Holy Orders.”
The show follows five technology-obsessed women, who swap their social media accounts for convent living in East Anglia for four weeks under the guidance of the full-time sisters.
