Food Train Connects (Angus)
Volunteer Meal Maker/Cook
Meal Makers is a part of the award-winning Scottish charity Food Train that supports older people to eat
well, age well and live well. We are a local neighbourhood food-sharing project that connects people who love cooking (Cooks) with an older neighbour (Diner). The Cook then creates an additional portion of home-cooked food for the Diner and they share a nice meal together.

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 that suits them. We’re aiming to tackle social isolation and the growing problem of malnutrition by helping older adults get access to home cooked food and company.
Signing up to be a volunteer Cook couldn’t be easier. Go to www.mealmakers.org.uk, complete a profile and we’ll start looking to connect you with a Diner in your area.
