Charity registered in Scotland SC024843
Food Train is a registered charity, voluntary organisation and social enterprise. Since 1995 Food Train has been making daily life easier for older people, providing vital services to those who are no longer able to manage independently, through age, ill health, frailty or disability.
Food Train makes hundreds of grocery deliveries every week, ensuring those most in need have access to fresh groceries. Teams of dedicated local volunteers across the regions also go that extra mile by helping with household jobs, delivering books through our library service and providing much needed friendly social contact and meals through our Meal Makers and befriending services.
Following 15 years of successfully supporting older people throughout Dumfries and Galloway, in 2010, Food Train embarked on our ambitious project to make our services available to older people in other parts of Scotland. With support from the Scottish Government, Community Food and Health Scotland and the relevant health and social care partnerships, we are delighted that Food Train services are now available in many more areas.
In order to fulfil our vision for all older people in Scotland, we endeavour, in partnership with our public and independent sector partners, to continue growing and expanding our services and support for older people to enable them to eat well, live well and age well at home.
