Food for Life Better Care is a programme of Soil Association Scotland.  The Soil Association is testing a framework that supports the provision of nutritious, sustainable food and activities that benefit residents, staff and the wider community. 

The programme is exploring how good food can improve the health and wellbeing of older people in care homes.  The programme is focussing on how:

  • Good food can address residents complex nutritional needs and reduce the risk of malnutrition and dehydration
  • Food growing and therapeutic activities provide a more stimulating environment that supports physical and mental health and wellbeing.
