Church launches new soup service in Norwich
Harassed mothers, busy shoppers, older people who want a bit of company or even schoolteachers wanting a spot of lunch are all catered for by a new service launched by Oak Grove Chapel
Bowl and Spoon is the new service run on Monday lunchtimes from 11.30am to 2pm from Oak Grove Chapel where you can get a bowl of home-made soup, a roll and a drink to keep you going through the day.
Susie Abeyta, co-ordinator of the group, said: “It’s for harassed mums who want a break from catering, for folks who want a change from eating alone, for people visiting local shops, for people working in the area – it’s for anyone. Come and try it sometime.
“We provide wholesome cooking which is provided by a team of people from the community and the Chapel. Only the very best locally grown vegetables are used.”
One happy client said: “It’s just lovely to be able to come out and meet others and eat something that you haven’t cooked.”
If you don’t want to stay then there is a takeaway service and a very special delivery service for local schoolteachers.
Vegetables are supplied by Robert Brand of Anglia Square and other Fair Trade ingredients supplement the menu. There is a small charge to cover the cost of the ingredients. For details contact the church office on 01603 403388.
