Soup kitchen: helping others less fortunate

This project idea will develop a knowledge and understanding of Glasgow health, society, poverty and helping to tackle these issues by applying this knowledge in a real life context. Young people will work in teams to create a soup which will be highly nutritious. They will seek sponsorship from supermarkets to make the soup and help hand it out in their local area with the aid of a charity e.g. 'Shelter' in order to provide the homeless with a good healthy meal.
