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.

Current opportunity

Do you love cooking and meeting new people? We’re recruiting volunteer Cooks to do a weekly meal share with an elderly Diner in their community. This simple and effective service looks to tackle malnutrition, loneliness and isolation amongst elderly people (55+). If you want to be involved in a ‘feel good’ service that delivers real benefit to elderly people in Dundee then please do get in touch. You don’t have to be Gordon Ramsay in order to be able to deliver this service but you are required to have good cooking skills and a good grasp of food hygiene and the desire to support someone in your community. If you want to signup it couldn’t be easier jut create a profile at or contact us on 0800 783 7770.
