Hope celebrates vegetarian food

With help from the UK Vegetarian society and in the build up to UK Vegetarian Week 2018, Hope is really pleased to promote vegetarian food across all Hope's food work - the meals in our day centre are all vegetarian tomorrow, May 3rd, plus special dishes on Thursday in our catering and veg food boxes in foodclub - and in our growing project we are beginning to prepare to grow healthy veg. Hope: committed to sustainability and healthy food that people on low incomes can source and cook cheaply for themselves!

Our views

Gardening Volunteers Needed!

Hope needs some green-fingered volunteers to help out with our three gardening sites, especially the new allotment growing food for the day centre and foodclub.

See the advert here

Storage space needed

Warehouse or storage space needed!

Hope needs to store some goods and we need access to about 1000 sq feet of dry storage space for about 6-8 months. We need it to be in Northampton.

Can you help by donating or supplying us this space at minimal cost?

If so please contact the fundraising office at Hope.
