Food Friends connects people who love to cook and are willing to share an extra portion of food with a neighbour who would benefit from a nutritious meal and a friendly chat once in a while.

We are always looking for new volunteers to provide food and friendship to vulnerable and isolated individuals. Since the start of the COVID19 pandemic, we have expanded our service to also include families that need a little extra support. Regular food and friendship can make a big difference during this challenging time, so if you are interested in receiving a meal from a Food Friend, or want to know more information about how you can help, contact us.

We continue to work closely with local and national experts in safeguarding and food hygiene in order to ensure the provision of best practice at this time.

Guidance is constantly changing but we will try to keep you updated. For up-to-date guidance from the government, please follow the link below.
