Food Friends

Food Friends is a registered charity, working to combat social isolation and loneliness in communities through food and friendship. We do this through our innovative meal sharing initiative that connects volunteers – who are willing to deliver an extra portion of their home cooked food – with a neighbour – who would benefit from a nutritious meal and a doorstep chat. To date, we have recruited over 100 volunteer cooks in the Whitstable area who have delivered thousands of home cooked meals, each one with kindness and care. We have just embarked on setting up a Food Friends community in Faversham and have the vision of creating meal sharing communities across Kent.

We are always looking for new volunteers to deliver food and friendship, and have an ongoing list of Food Friends waiting to be matched with a friendly volunteer cook. Our volunteering opportunity is simple, uniquely rewarding, built on people’s love of food and its ability to connect those in a community who would otherwise never cross paths.
