Food Friends tackles social isolation and loneliness in communities through food and friendship.

Our meal-sharing initiative connects volunteers – who are willing to deliver an extra portion of their home cooked food – with a neighbour, who would benefit from a delicious home cooked meal and doorstep chat. The volunteering opportunity is simple, uniquely rewarding and built on people’s love of food and its ability to connect those in a community who would otherwise never cross paths

The gift of a meal is so much more than the ingredients on a plate. It’s nourishment beyond nutrition because it brings kindness and connection, which is exactly what lies at the heart of the Food Friends model. A donation of just £4 helps us to deliver a meal, with company and conversation, bringing your community together with every delicious bite
