How does it work?

Our team at Cafe Life in Stockbridge prepare meals fresh each morning in our professional kitchen.

Meals are two courses. There is a choice of two main courses each day with one choice always being vegetarian. All special dietary requirements and allergies can be catered for.

Meals are delivered hot and ready to eat at lunchtime.

Who is eligible?

The service is available to people 65 and over, living in North Edinburgh, including; Stockbridge, Comely Bank, Fettes, Craigleith, Murrayfield, Balgreen, Gorgie, Drylaw, Blackhall, Davidson’s Mains, Muirhouse, Pilton, Trinity, Newhaven, Warriston, Cannonmills, Bonnington and Leith.

We particularly aim to support older people who; cannot currently attend their day or lunch clubs, are recovering after a period of illness, a fall or a stay in hospital, are struggling with their mobility, have become more isolated due to the pandemic, are at risk of food deprivation, and older carers in need of some respite.

“it's 1st class and could not be better…I look forward to Monday and Wednesday knowing I am going to get a lovely cooked hot meal. Many, many thanks to all”

“the whole day is a little bit lighter for not having to worry, or even think, about preparing a main meal”

“LifeCare food means we get properly fresh cooked meals twice a week and very tasty too! … Don’t know how we managed before this help- thank you”
