Come Eat Together is a volunteer peer support project which aims to improve older people's ability to access, cook and enjoy healthy food together. The project helps older people to be more resilient and better able to cope with life stage changes such as retirement, bereavement or ill health.

The project is working in a number of ways to promote the enormous benefits of a healthy diet for older people including developing new Lunch Clubs and Dining Circles where older people can come together and take it in turns to cook for one another.

As an intergenerational project it provides lots of opportunities for older people to share their skills with others, including with young people who are keen to learn as well as help.

The project is increasing awareness of healthy food by sharing new ideas and recipes to tempt the taste buds. We are also exploring different ways to help older people do their shopping.

You can also buy a copy of our Eat Well Feel Great recipe book, which has delicious recipe ideas for snacks and meals, developed for one or two people.
