Around 200,000 older people go over a month without chatting to a friend or family member and almost half of older people in care homes consider their depression ‘a normal part of ageing’.
Food for Life are tackling both unhealthy eating and loneliness through community-led cooking and growing projects. Rooted in partnerships with groups of schools, nurseries and organisations supporting older people, Get Togethers will bring people of all ages and backgrounds together through food.
We know that having the chance to get together, share a fresh, healthy meal and have a chat can change people’s day to day lives. Click here to find out more about hosting a Get Together
