We are very pleased to support voluntary lunch clubs and the valuable service, contact and social activities they provide for older people.
However, like all catering for large numbers of people precautions must be taken to ensure food is stored, prepared, cooked and served hygienically and safely. Although you will find lots of information on food safety on our other pages, the booklets below provide detailed guidance on the most important aspects of hygiene, food safety and nutrition specifically for lunch clubs.
- Our Managing Food Safety for Voluntary Lunch Clubs (pdf) booklet takes you through the whole process of preparing food for others.
- Our Managing Food Safety Checklist for Voluntary Lunch Clubs (pdf) can be used as a food safety management system and should be completed by a supervisor after a lunch.
- Our Managing Nutrition for Voluntary Lunch Clubs (pdf) booklet provides information and advice on eating well and the eat well plate.
