The shire's newest community group Gunnedah Good Noshery is gaining momentum, with more and more locals visiting for a free meal.
Visitors to the Friday night soup kitchen have more than doubled in numbers, and volunteers are glad to be offering help to more people in need.
Gunnedah Good Noshery's founder Kate Perceval said numbers were "growing every week".
"We have regulars, people who come back every week and we're starting to get some kids in now too," Ms Perceval said.
"Everybody mingles and we had a guitarist and singer the other week. It's been going from strength-to-strength."
Each Friday the menu changes depending on what donations Ms Perceval receives from local organisations including Coles, Woolworths, Aldi, The Salvation Army, Gunnedah Food Pantry, Turning Point Church, and St Vincent De Pauls.
This week's menu includes sandwiches, leek soup and potato bake to start, followed by savoury mince cottage pie with crusty bread rolls.
Ms Perceval said she was glad it was working and making a positive difference.
"If everybody did their own bit of good, we'd get a lot done," she said.
"I'm happy to do it and I hope more people come along and join in the fellowship."
Gunnedah Good Noshery runs every Friday night at Gunnedah CWA Rooms. New winter hours are from 5pm-7.30pm, and everyone is welcome.
