ARE YOU AGED OVER 65? DO YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR SHOPPING?

CALL US on 01786 450536

Food Train is a local charity offering support to older people who are living at home and are struggling to do their weekly grocery shop.  Friendly volunteers will help to take your order on a Monday and then shop and deliver your groceries to you on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, providing support to put items away wherever it is needed.  We already help more than 200 older people in this area, and we are supported by a brilliant team of 50+ volunteers. This is service that provides customers with choice, and is very affordable at a cost of £4 for each delivery and £1 for your annual membership fee. We cover all Stirling Local Authority areas. 

ARE YOU AGED OVER 55? WOULD YOU LIKE A FRIENDLY NEIGHBOUR TO DELIVER YOU SOME HOME-COOKED FOOD?

‘Meal Makers’ is Food Train’s very own local neighbourhood food-sharing project that connects people who love cooking (cooks) and want to share an extra portion of their delicious home-cooked food with an older neighbour (diner) who would really appreciate a freshly prepared meal and a friendly chat. How often meals are shared, and when they are shared is decided between the cook and diner. No money changes hands. It is simply a donation of food between neighbours. The only cost associated with Meal Makers is a £5 annual fee for diners to become members.
