Every week Forward Assist hold a social lunch for veterans and the local community.

This consists of a hot nutritious cooked meal, prepared with fresh , home grown produce by our veteran volunteers.

We also operate a ‘Pay It Forward’ scheme where customers at the Salute Café can purchase two items with one held in lieu for a veteran in need.

The team regularly cook for up to 50 diners a week and the experience challenges the veterans to use the skills they have learned to develop new menus and recipes, whilst giving them all the basic skills necessary to prepare tasty and nutritious meals at home.
