Covid-19 Service UPDATE...

Who can sign up to Meal Makers?

Anyone over the age of 55, living in Edinburgh. Join Meal Makers and have one of our volunteer Cooks deliver a portion of their home cooked food and some company.

What are the benefits of signing up?

Meal Makers is so much more than just sharing food. A large part of the service is the regular company that our Cooks provide for older people. Loneliness and isolation is a serious problem amongst older people and we’re looking to tackle that one meal share at a time. If you know someone who could benefit from a nutritious home cooked meal and some company then complete the form at
