About Food Train

Food Train is a charity helping older people across Scotland.  We offer our members practical help to eat well, age well and live well at home for longer. 

We’d like to see access to food and meals for older people right across Scotland that is readily available, culturally appropriate, nutritious, fresh and designed to improve health and wellbeing of our older population.

What we do

Teams of dedicated Food Train volunteers working across Scotland provide vital services helping older people affected by ill health, frailty and disability.   We offer a weekly shopping service, regular meal share service, various befriending options and, in a few areas of the country, help with household tasks and access to library books.
