Grab ‘n Go Bags

A Friday treat or something for the weekend

Our Grab ‘n Go weekend snack bags are an easy and convenient option for anyone looking to treat themselves on a Friday or to keep them going over the weekend.

When we developed Grab ‘n Go Bags we were aware that many of our local older people often did not cook hot, nutritious meals for themselves and regularly reached for easier, convenience foods that were not always a healthy option. Other local older people were simply not eating much food at all over the course of a weekend. Grab ‘n Go Bags aimed to address this issue by offering a healthy solution that would be delivered straight to a person’s door. Since starting the project in May 2019, we have found that the bags are of benefit to far more people than we originally anticipated. Families are now ordering them for their children and busy working professionals choose them as a lunchtime treat for themselves at the end of the week.

Each bag is £3.50 and contains:

  • A drink
  • Freshly-made soup (two choices are available each week)
  • A piece of fruit
  • A sandwich, quiche or sausage roll
  • A homemade sweet treat

The snack bags are made fresh on a Friday morning and delivered to customers at their home, place of work or wherever they choose in Helmsdale, Brora, Golspie and the surrounding areas, that afternoon.

The Grab ‘n Go bags work well alongside our Dinner To Your Door project, which provides freshly-prepared 1, 2 and 3-course hot meals Monday to Thursday.
