Dole Produce, from Fishguard, will donate vegetables and Celtic Food Services, Pembroke Dock, will supply bread so the professional catering team can prepare a soup each week.

Every Thursday in January volunteers from across Pembrokeshire Council will support the catering team in preparing and serving tasty, wholesome soups.

These will be available to all between 5.30pm and 7.30pm every Thursday, with the council saying there will be recipe cards to takeaway should anyone wish to recreate the meals at home.

Pembrokeshire Council leader, Cllr David Simpson, said: “This fantastic initiative was suggested by staff. It gives everyone the opportunity to pop in and get a tasty, hot soup, which they can take away, or they can stop and eat with us, at no cost.

“As well as something tasty to eat thanks to the generosity of council suppliers, it will also be a chance to enjoy a warm space and chat with volunteers and others involved.”

Council staff will also be on hand to offer information and signposting to help with cost of living issues, along with well-being and mental health support.

This first event will be held on Thursday, 5th January, followed by the 12th, 19th and 26th.
