Meal Makers

Charity registered in Scotland SC024843

Meal Makers has been brought to Scotland by the award winning charity Food Train and is proudly sponsored by the Scottish Government and the Tank Foundation. It is a free, local neighbourhood food-sharing project that connects volunteers who have a passion for cooking and want to be active in their communities (Cooks), with older neighbours (Diners) who would appreciate a home cooked meal.

Volunteers should also inform staff of any accidents, incidents or complaints. • Keeping within the boundaries of the role • Maintaining confidentiality • Represent Meal Makers in a professional manner to our members and the wider community
