Shopping Delivery

Food Train’s shopping delivery service ensures that you have access to fresh and affordable groceries, delivered direct to your home on a weekly basis, or less often if that suits you. Our volunteers can unpack and put shopping items away where needed.

About the service

Anyone over the age of 65 who has difficulty getting their grocery shopping can use the service. Our service is designed to help you enjoy fresh food and a well-balanced diet and help you remain in the comfort of your own home in your community without the worry or carrying heavy shopping.

There are several ways Food Train can support you:

  • If there is a Food Train branch near you, we have teams of volunteers working together to collect your shopping list, make up your order in the local supermarket then deliver your food and groceries in Food Train branded vans. 
  • Where we do not have a branch service, we can offer our one to one shopping service where we connect you with a volunteer living nearby who will shop and deliver to you using their own transport.
  • In some areas we can also offer Shopping Companions and supported shopping trips to take you out to do your own shopping.

  • Scotland-wide

The Food Train is an excellent service in so many ways, for me it takes the worry out of carrying heavy shopping and the concern of maybe slipping and having a fall. Getting older, it's reassuring to know there are good people who can help.
