Alleviating poverty, bringing hope

Hundreds of litres of soup for those who are sleeping rough

Hundreds of litres of soup was delivered to those who were sleeping rough thanks to the work of schools and businesses in Luton.

Ferrars Junior School, Beech Hill, Pirton Hill and Downside Primary School, NOAH Enterprise, Roland Allen Ltd and Sparshotts Fruiterers worked together on the idea to help the homeless.

Brian Herbert, Business Manager at Ferrars Junior School, and Mark Passarelli, Catering Manager of Food Counts, decided to use any surplus vegetables that were left over from the four schools to make the soup.

They then condensed it, froze it and donated it to NOAH Enterprise, a charity that helps the homeless.
