Food on Foot is an idea for enhancing the lives of young people and old through preparing and delivering meals. Elderventure is facilitating this project in collaboration with Routes YMCA and Active and in Touch.
Many young people have never learned to cook and this impacts on their confidence and on their health – healthy eating can be a consequence of cooking the food yourself
We are aiming to teach young people to cook and to deliver the meals they prepare to isolated and older people in the community.
We hope this will also connect with the Community Gardens project which grows flowers and food on a lovely spot near the Mount in Frome.
Growing and cooking food helps people to care for the environment, eat healthily and feel self-reliant. Delivering food to lonely people joins up two vulnerable ends of society and creates good community feeling.
