On Wed 13th October we hosted our panel discussion event ‘Where are we now?’ for UK Malnutrition Awareness Week.

2021 has developed from crisis intervention into a period of recovery and reflection at Food Train. Like many other third sector organisations throughout the pandemic, Food Train focus was on response and working tirelessly to deliver lifeline services for older people in Scotland – and although these are still uncertain times, this year has allowed us to take stock of what we have achieved, what the pandemic taught us as a society and what needs to happen next to ensure older people are able to eat well, age well and live well in Scotland.

With the theme of reflection and recovery in mind, we wanted to discuss…

  • What has changed?
  • How did it change?
  • What still needs to change?

…for older people to eat well, age well and live well in Scotland.

We were delighted to welcome Maree Todd MSP as our keynote speaker and the event was chaired by Food Train CEO, Michelle Carruthers.

We had a fantastic line up of speakers for our panel:

Prof. Ian Welsh, OBE – Chief Executive The Alliance

Lindsay Graham – Independent Government Policy Advisor

Karen McCurry – Manager, MS Argyll

Cllr Jennifer Adam-McGregor
