    We are a local charity providing a food shopping and delivery service to older people.  We cover the entire Stirling Council area but have a strong Dunblane customer base.  You may have seen our vans out - Thursday is our Dunblane delivery day. The service is wholly provided by good-hearted local volunteers.  If you would like to find out more about volunteering with Food Train please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

    We have recently launched a new partnership with Waitrose (April 2017).

    The Food Train is a charity that provides a vital grocery delivery service for older people who struggle to do their own shopping which may be due to frailty, ill health or disability. In Stirling alone there are 51 volunteers who put in 15,000 volunteering hours each year. Food Train currently offer customers the shopping service at Morrisons and Sainsbury’s, but are pleased to be able to give customers more choice by extending this service to Waitrose.

    If you are an older person living in Stirling or the surrounding area and need help with your shopping, call the Food Train on (01786) 450536.  If you would like to find out more about volunteering with Food Train, check www.thefoodtrain.co.uk,   email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
