Sustain Older People’s Food Campaign

We’re campaigning to save and enhance meals on wheels services, reinvigorate lunch clubs, and make sure that all older people have access to a decent meal every day.

We’re working with individuals, communities and government to:

  1. Save, reintroduce and enhance meals on wheels services.
  2. Promote a ‘more than meal’ approach where services include welfare checks, links to other support, and a lifeline of regular contact.
  3. Champion innovative and strategic approaches that recognise the long-term benefits and savings of meals on wheels for older people, for communities, and for the public purse.

Connect with other people who care about meals on wheels!
We have an email forum for anyone involved in meals on wheels service delivery, campaigning, or community work. Join this forum to ask questions, share resources and get support from others who are running, developing or expanding meals on wheels services across the UK. Email to join. Once subscribed you can then send a message to everyone in the group by emailing

Older People’s Food Campaign: Meals on wheels services support thousands of older people every day to stay independent in their own homes and enrich their lives.
