A Norwich pub is donating more than 3,000 meals to help the homeless.

The Garden House, in Norwich, will deliver thousands of meal pouches to organisations across Norwich and Great Yarmouth as well as 300 winter warmth flasks, as part of an initiative with hospitality charity Only A Pavement Away (OAPA).

They include a variety of dishes, as well as tinned food, cutlery and flasks provided by OAPA.

The pub's donation will see 500 meals go to St Martins hostels in Norwich, Norwich City Council’s Pathway Scheme and the Tribal Trust soup kitchen in Great Yarmouth.

A further 250 meals will go to Project Nova, a Norfolk based initiative working with veterans, as well as 250 meals sent to Soul Church for their soup kitchen in Norwich.
