On the 14th of September PEP and LOOPS NW hosted an event for the ‘Soil Association Scotland’. This charity created ‘The Food for Life Better Care’ programme to improve the health and wellbeing of older people and bring communities together to reduce loneliness.
The event gave 13 local older people the opportunity to come along and chat to the researchers about their views on food, eating well and bringing people together. They shared memories of favourite foods and chatted about subjects such as food and diabetes. The participants also got the chance to relax with a cup of tea and piece of cake… or a carrot stick if they preferred!
Our thanks go to the Soil Association for coming along; and to all the participants for giving up some time to help out with the research.
