Tackling malnutrition in older people living at home in Scotland

The Big Lunch in New Deer

The Big Lunch in New Deer event took place on Sunday, 28th July 2019. Local older people were invited to a community lunch to enjoy a nutritious meal and meet new people in their area. Information about healthy eating in later life was available to help raise better awareness about the signs and symptoms of malnutrition.

A grant was awarded to The Big Lunch in New Deer event to support organisers to buy local ingredients, food from local businesses and to provide transport to make the event as accessible as possible for older people.
