Free food for those in need.

Age UK Somerset is committed to supporting older people in a variety of ways.

During these tough times some older people, who are living alone, may find getting food a difficulty. We can help put them in touch with a delivery service and, soon we’ll have a limited number of bags of essentials we can deliver to you. Free of charge.

The bag will include a variety of essentials and long life products, and maybe some goodies for a treat.

If you know someone who could benefit please do email us at We can’t promise (it depends on supplies) but will do our very best.
