    Why work with Food Train?

    When you choose a charity to work with, you want the partnership to feel like a natural extension of your business.

    Its work should be something that both your workforce and your customers can relate to and will be excited about contributing to. 

    We believe Food Train can offer you exactly that. 

    As a charity working with older people we understand that no one wants to think about their friends and family ageing and struggling with everyday activities like hoovering or even changing a lightbulb shopping, let alone being socially isolated and lonely. But the reality is that as we live longer we all may need the help and support that Food Train offers.
