AYRSHIRE College has secured funding for a free soup initiative which will run for two years.

The initiative will be available to all students across the campuses, by offering a homemade soup, a dinner roll, and a smile.

The college believes that by providing students with a warm and nutritious meal each day, this will assist them in their efforts towards learning.

The initiative has been funded by the Ayrshire College Foundation, who have provided support for a predicted uptake of around 700 soup portions per week to the students of Ayrshire College.

Students can claim their free soup and dinner roll, by presenting their valid student card to a member of the canteen staff during lunchtime from Monday through to Friday.
