We support people who are hungry and lonely by serving tasty lunches and dinners every single day in towns and cities across the country. Many of our guests struggle to afford the basics to eat and many will eat alone without company or conversation.
We know that so many people are also struggling with loneliness and feeling isolated, so we also launched our Check-in and Chat service, where volunteers call guests for a weekly natter.
