In March 2020, as an immediate and direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the food poverty we were seeing in our community, we launched Scran 4 the Fam, a daily soup delivery service. Our community cook Susan and volunteer Amanda make fresh vegetable soup every morning and a team of volunteer drivers deliver it hot to the doorsteps of our West End community. We currently provide approx. 100 individuals and families with healthy, home-cooked soup every day and have delivered 19,000 portions since we began.
Each month it has been documented by Open Clasp Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Catrina McHugh, capturing the experiences of the pandemic as she delivered soup each day. See our latest video 1 Year On below.
We continue to deliver soup every day – please get in touch if you or anyone you know would like to register.
