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:
- Save, reintroduce and enhance meals on wheels services.

- 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.
