Meal Maker

  • VO92649


The volunteer cook will be matched with an older person living in their area. They will provide a portion of a home cooked meal once a week, deliver it to the older person and stay for a chat if required. This meal share activity has a very important befriending element to it as many if our members may be socially isolated and will value having a local connection within their community.
