Food Train

Food Train offers a befriending service called Food Train Friends in Dumfries & Galloway, Dundee City, West Lothian and Glasgow. We offer telephone befriending, 1-2-1 home visits (with matched befrienders) and trips out (group outings) for our members. Our service aims to reduce loneliness and social isolation in older people.

Information for volunteers

If you have an interest in supporting older people within your community by spending some time with them then please get in touch. All training and out of pocket expenses will be organised.
