After the fantastic feedback we had in 2021, we've decided to bring the soup kitchen back for 2022; running every Wednesday from 3pm-6pm until the end of March.

The project started in January 2021, we were in lockdown and we wanted a project that could help people both physically and mentally. We cooked a lot of delicious soup and handed it out along with lots of other goodies that were donated from local businesses and FareShare southWest to as many people as we could.
