Lunch clubs are a great way to stay independent, make friends and try out new activities. We fund about 60 lunch clubs around the city catering for nearly 2,000 older people and serving 70,000 hot meals a year.

We offer grants on a year by year basis to support the activities of lunch clubs across the city. The majority of these are clubs run by, and for, older people.

Join a lunch club

You can join a lunch club or request further information via Voluntary Action Sheffield's lunch club referral service. You can either make a referral for yourself or someone you know would like like to join a lunch club. 

The lunch club referral service is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 10am to 4pm.

Each map icon displays the lunch club's name, address and a link to more information like when the club meets, the cost of a meal, and how to get there.

Volunteer at a lunch club

The majority of lunch clubs are run by volunteers and there are lots of opportunities to get involved.

Typically, volunteers help with:

  • cooking and serving meals
  • bookkeeping and finances
  • organising and general administration
  • transporting members
  • activities and fundraising

Contact Voluntary Action Sheffield to volunteer at a lunch club.
