Social Eating Guide

Evidence increasingly shows that communal eating promotes social bonding and feelings of well-being. It also enhances people’s connections to their communities.

The Social Eating Guide and supporting documents have been created after a two-year programme, funded by GMCVO-programme Ambition for Ageing, and delivered by a partnership of organisations, led by Talk, Listen, Change, (TLC), who designed and tested a range of social eating project in Greater Manchester.

The information is available in three documents:

  • Social Eating Guide - a useful practical guide for groups and organisations wishing to set up social eating activities

  • Technical Handbook – additional technical information about setting up social eating activities

  • Project Story - evaluation and key learning from the project as we ran it

You can download all three documents below.
