The Food Train began in 1995 following a community survey of older people that found many of them struggling with their weekly grocery shopping. Food Train is a grocery shopping, befriending and household support service for older people assisting and enabling them to live at home independently for as long as they are able.
The Food Train has three services:
- Grocery Delivery: For older people living in Dundee who are facing difficulties with grocery shopping
- Befriending Service: We offer Food Train Friends to older people across the city. Members pay £12 per year which goes to the cost of any excursions or trips
- Meal Makers: A local meal sharing service for anyone aged 55 years or older. We connect people who love cooking, and are happy to share an extra portion with an older neighbour
