Soup and a roll

As the cold weather approaches, shoppers, visitors and workers in Northallerton are reminded that they can ward off those hunger pangs and support a local charity at the same time.

Every Wednesday between 12 noon and 1.30pm at the Zion United Reformed Church on the High Street, volunteers from Hambleton FoodShare serve hot homemade and delicious soup and roll for just £2.50. There is a choice of four soups each week and tea and coffee is also available.

And for those in a rush, there is also a takeout option too together with the option to pay contactless.

“Our soup is made by volunteers, served by volunteers and all the money raised goes to supporting Hambleton FoodShare – your local foodbank,” said Michael Webster, Chair of the Foodshare

“As we are a registered charity, we are run almost entirely by volunteers and rely heavily on fundraising.  Soup and a roll provides not only shoppers but also workers with a quick, cheap and healthy lunch and allows us to raise much needed funds at the same time so please come along and support us.

“We were delighted to be able to support the recent UCI Road World Championships when it visited Northallerton and our team served up delicious soup to  the visitors on the day .

“And we are also grateful to the local schools and churches who are currently donating all of their harvest festival tins and packets to the Foodbank which are going into the weekly food parcels.”

  • Hambleton FoodShare provides emergency food parcels for people who are in temporary financial crisis and struggling to feed themselves and their families.  This could be because they have lost their job, become incapacitated or the result of a delay in benefit payments.
