Description

Meal Makers is a subsidiary of the award winning Scottish Charity Food Train. Food Train is an innovative volunteer-led grocery shopping delivery service which brings vital fresh food to vulnerable older people in need. Since launching in 1995, Food Train has gone from strength to strength over the years and has expanded into 9 regions in Scotland and now supports over 1,600 older people with the tremendous help of over 600 volunteers.

What We Do...

Meal Makers is a local neighbourhood food-sharing project that connects people who love cooking, and who are happy to share an extra portion of home cooked food, with an older neighbour who would really appreciate a freshly prepared meal and a friendly chat. By turning an everyday activity into a volunteering opportunity, Meal Makers strengthens connections within communities and provides a flexible way for people to volunteer their time and skills locally in a way which suits them.
