This fund has been specifically designed so that individuals, community groups, social enterprises, charities and public sector workers can test out their ideas around the theme of older people living well via food.
It will enable organisations to develop and complete work aimed at preventing, detecting or treating hunger and malnutrition and supporting older people to eat well, age well and live well.
Examples of activities are:
incorporating a food aspect into a physical activity project;
staff/volunteer/carer training which is part of a wider food project;
peer support or befriending projects; and
intergenerational food work to reduce social isolation.
