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.

UK households waste 4.5 million tonnes of edible food a year, equating to 10 billion meals. So if you often find yourself with that extra portion, don’t pop it in the bin or freeze it with good intention, do something great with that plate.

A meal is more than just the ingredients on the plate, nourishment beyond nutrition. It’s the provision of kindness and hope. A donation of just £3.80 provides a meal, delivered with company and conversation, combatting loneliness and isolation with every delicious bite.
