Meal Makers in Dundee

Meal Makers is an excellent service provided Food Train.   Food Train is an innovative volunteer led grocery shopping delivery service in Dundee and elsewhere in Scotland which brings vital fresh food to vulnerable older people in need.   You can read more about Food Train in Dundee here.
 
The Meal Makers service that Food Train also manages 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.
 
If you know an older person (55+ years) who could benefit from a home cooked meal and some company once a week then please call Meal Makers on 0800 783 7770.

Meal Makers

Meal Makers is a new project launched by the Food Train and is a free, local neighbourhood, food-sharing project that connects people who like to cook and are happy to share an extra portion of a delicious home cooked meal, with older neighbours living close by who could really benefit from a hot cooked meal.    
 
The project is trying to get a lot of Meal Makers members on board to cook tasty, home-cooked food for their neighbours in order to get more people eating and cooking fresh meals.
It is hoped that by running this project, it will help combat some issues experienced by older people in the community such as social isolation and the growing problem of malnutrition many elderly people experience as a result of having difficulty cooking nutritious food for themselves.   It is also hoped the project will help to strengthen connections within communities and provide a flexible way for people to volunteer their time and skills locally in a way which suits them.
Meal Makers is being rolled out in Dundee as a pilot, and its planned to take the project nationwide if all things go well.
