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 will arrange to collect your shopping list either in person, by phone or by email. We’ll make up your order in the local supermarket then deliver your food and groceries, unpacking and putting things away where needed. We hope this will 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.
Anyone over the age of 65 who has difficulty getting their grocery shopping and lives in a Food Train area can use the service. It costs £5 per delivery, which is paid alongside the cost of your shopping. There is a £1 annual membership to pay, which also entitles you to use any other service we have in your area.
Service areas for our shopping delivery service can be found here.
From time to time supermarket offers can result in savings for customers on the cost of their shopping. Where individual savings are made those will always be given to the customer. Where the saving has resulted directly from the collective purchase of multiple customers, the saving will be used by Food Train to further the charitable aims and objectives of the organisation.
