Sunny Soups grew out of the Plenty Project as a way for course participants to stay in touch, continue to learn new cooking skills, and volunteer to reduce local food waste and generate free, nourishing food for the community.

Unsold fruit, vegetables and herbs are donated by Cooperative Food, and turned by volunteers into soups, compotes, stewed fruit, purees and more. This is then available for anyone to take, absolutely free, from a freezer in Dunbar’s Bleachingfield Centre.

Thanks go to project funder SCVO, local shops for their support with ingredients, and Zero Waste Dunbar for funding our freezer.
