Food Train Friends in Dundee kicked off Befriending Week with a stall at Tesco Extra South Road.
Food Train Friends from across D&G enjoyed a fabulous trip to the Devil's Porridge Museum in Eastriggs recently to hear all about the 'National Kitchens 1917' project from Dr Bryce Evans from Liverpool Hope University. Those present enjoyed a 1917 style meal of the day whilst sitting together (which is what the government project was all about at that time - social and healthy eating during wartime Britain). A jazz band played music from the period and a great day was had by all 50 people in attendance. A big thank you to the staff and volunteers from the museum who worked hard to feed us and look after us all. #nationalkitchens1917
Derek Mackay MSP for Renfrewshire North and West came along as our special guest volunteer recently. Derek got to see the impact of Food Train in Renfrewshire and the work put in by our our amazing volunteers. Derek had a good chat with the customers he delivered to and was able to sort out some of his constituents' problems along the way.
