The charity, based at the Eden Centre in the town, provide hot food, clothes and shelter to those in need.

The Hub is open every Monday from 5.30pm to 7.30pm to provide a two-course meal each week free of charge.

Colleagues from the Kettering Tesco went along to help and support during a food service with a view to supporting the local community.

They are doing this through their Community Food Connection, where surplus food is given to charities for free.

So far, Tesco has donated enough food to provide more than three million meals to more than 3,300 charities and community groups across the UK, which includes more than 3,000 meals from the Kettering store.

If you would like to make a donation of clothes, tents or sleeping bags or would like to volunteer contact Jo Moore at the Hub on [email protected].
