This Autumn, premium soup brand Yorkshire Provender is launching a new soup in partnership with Centrepoint. Launching exclusively in Waitrose shops, 20p from each pot of Omero’s Red Pepper soup with Chorizo will go directly towards the charity’s work with young homeless people across the country.

The soup was created by Omero Gallucci, home cook from Guildford who won the 2018 Centrepoint Big Broth cook-off competition to find the tastiest home-made soup recipe. The winning soup was chosen from hundreds of entries and judged by a whole host of celebrity names from William Sitwell, to Aldo Zilli and Vanessa Feltz.

The soup is full of natural ingredients and just what we need to get us in the mood for the colder months after a long, hot summer. The comforting soup combines a base of fresh vegetables, including red peppers, tomatoes and onions and is cooked through with chorizo to give the soup its depth and smoky flavour.

It is naturally healthy too. Coeliac friendly, naturally low in fat and containing absolutely no added sugar.

Centrepoint’s Big Broth is bringing the nation together this Autumn to turn the nation into Souper Troupers, with the aim of more than 3,000 soup parties being held across the country in homes, offices and community spaces from 2nd-10thNovember 2018. In an effort to raise money to support Centrepoint’s work with homeless 16-25 year olds, the organisers hope the Soupathon will serve up 30,000 bowls of hearty soup.

Richard Utting, Centrepoint’s Events Directorsaid: “It’s fantastic to see the first Big Broth soup in Waitrose this Autumn, just in time for our Soupathon from 2nd-10thNovember. The money raised will make a life changing difference to young people across the UK who are at risk of homelessness. Thank you to Waitrose, Yorkshire Provender and their customers for their support.”

Omero Gallucci, winner of the Big Broth 2018competitionsaid: “My soup recipe has been inspired by my Mediterranean heritage and is a winner in my family household, enjoyed by all.It is perfect for warming you up on a cold day and tastes great with toasted ciabatta bread. I’m so pleased my soup will be able to raise money for the great cause that is Centrepoint.”

Omero’s Red Pepper soup with Chorizo will be available to buy from 26th September at Waitrose (RRP £2.50 for 600g) and 20p from each pot sold will go directly towards Centrepoint’s work supporting homeless young people each year into a home and a job.
