1000 hot meals provided by Harrogate church

A Harrogate church has kept people fed during the lockdown, with 1000 hot meals served in April alone.
St Peter’s Harrogate has been serving food from the West Door of the church, making sure folk can have a hot breakfast and, since lockdown began, an evening meal.
The Vicar of St Peter’s, Revd Alan Garrow, said: "St Peter's food ministry is a small sign of God's open-armed generosity - thanks to the tireless efforts of an incredibly hard-working team of volunteers who have been shopping for, collecting and delivering produce, cooking, packing, serving and keeping the place clean and tidy. 
“In this and many other ways St Peter's ministry doesn't stop."
The food is provided in partnership with local businesses.
The provision of evening meals started when Betty's Café was closed suddenly, and they sent over all that day's fresh meals, that had to be served hot that day.
A hot breakfast is served from Monday to Saturday from 8:20am to 8:45am, with hot food in the evening available from 4pm to 5pm.
On Sundays, a hot takeaway lunch is served from 1:00pm to 1:30pm.
