Meal Makers

Meal Makers is a project that connects people who love cooking and are happy to share an extra portion of a delicious home cooked meal with an older neighbour

How does it work?

  • Our Meal Makers volunteer ‘Cooks’ love cooking and they want to share their delicious food and get to know people in their local area.
  • Customers, or ‘Diners’, are matched with a ‘Cook’ in their local area who will bring round an extra portion of their home cooked food at a time agreed by both parties.
  • Meal sharing can occur as often as the ‘Cook’ and ‘Diner’ would like, whether that is weekly, fortnightly, or just now and again.
  • Cooks are required to sign up online (  and undertake a safeguarding process before being connected with a local ‘Diner’.
  • We currently offer our Meal Makers Service in Dundee, Glasgow, Perth and Kinross, Renfrewshire, Edinburgh, Stirling and West Lothian.

Who can use Meal Makers?

  • You must over 55 and be a member of the Food Train to use Meal Makers. 
  • People of all ages are welcome to sign up as a volunteer ‘Cook’.
