Meal Makers (Perth)

Charity registered in Scotland SC024843

Our project aims to encourage community cohesion, reduce social isolation and malnutrition in older people. We connect volunteers who love cooking (Cooks) with an older neighbour (Diner), who would appreciate some company and a home cooked meal.

Current opportunity

Meal Makers is a local neighbourhood food sharing project that connects people who love cooking, and who are happy to share an extra portion of home-cooked food, with an older neighbour who would really appreciate a freshly prepared meal and a friendly chat. Meal Makers strengthens connections within communities and provides a flexible way for people to volunteer their time and skills locally. Meals can be shared once a week, once a fortnight or every now and then, at times to suits. Meal Makers uses an online platform to connect Cooks with Diners ( We will organise your PVG membership, basic hygiene training and we have a Facebook group so you can connect with other Cooks as well as staff members.
