Harrogate & Ripon Food Angels

Harrogate & Ripon Food Angels was founded in 2012. The closure of the meals on wheels service left a real gap and we wanted to respond to local demand. Our team of dedicated volunteers now deliver over 100 homemade meals every day.

Isolation and loneliness are extremely common for older people and our Food Angels provide much needed social interaction. They are trained to spot potential safety hazards and check on clients’ well-being. Any concerns can then be flagged up with family members or the relevant health professionals.

Our meals are prepared from fresh ingredients at The Cuttings. Our catering team are dedicated to creating nutritious and filling meals and providing variety.

Diet and nutrition are important at any stage of life but in later years it is even more essential to eat well. Many older people become unable to prepare hot meals for themselves and this can have an adverse effect on their health. Our hot meal delivery service ensures that older people have a fresh meal every day.

This popular service is in high demand so if you would like to volunteer as one of our Food Angels then we would love to hear from you. Alternatively, if you are interested in benefiting from our hot meal delivery service then contact our friendly team for more information.

There is a constant demand on all our services and we work hard to ensure that our standards never drop. As a not-for-profit organisation, we do not have huge amounts of financial reserves. This means that we rely heavily on the generosity and support of the local community. You can help us continue making a difference by donating, volunteering or fundraising.
