Meal Makers

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.

We have cooks ready in the following areas where we are specifically looking for Diners:

Aberuthven x 1

Auchterarder x 1 (not available until end of June)

We also have a 1 diner in Crieff and are looking for volunteer cooks to sign up as we don’t have any cooks in Crieff.

Cooks can join Meal Makers by visiting or contacting Meal Makers on 01738 452236 /

If you would like to sign up as a Diner or know someone who would really appreciate some home cooked food, then you please call Meal Makers on 01738 452236.
