Meal Makers, the project that connects people and local communities through food, has now rolled out its services to Perth and Kinross.

The service is a free, local neighbourhood food-sharing project that uses an online platform to connect volunteers of any age who have a passion for cooking and want to be active in their communities (Cooks), with older neighbours over the age of 55 (Diners) who would appreciate a delicious home cooked meal from a friendly neighbour. Once a Cook and Diner have been matched the Cook will prepare an extra meal and deliver it to their Diner at a time agreed by both parties.

By matching volunteer cooks with diners Meal Makers aims to reduce food poverty and malnutrition, improve diets and combat social isolation by breaking down the barriers that lead to loneliness. The project helps to strengthen connections within communities by providing a flexible way for people to volunteer their time and skills locally in a way which suits them.

Meal Makers has made a flying start in Perth and Kinross having made several matches in different parts of the region with both Cooks and Diners advising that they are thoroughly enjoying meal shares and being part of the project. For a Diner to join Meal Makers, there is a £5 membership for the year. There is no payment for any of the meals that are given as this is from the volunteer.
