Nosh Night

Nosh night is a monthly over 50s supper club held at the Barnet Mencap offices.

Each month a different style of cuisine is served as chosen by the members alongside a social activity. It brings people over 50 together, who are isolated in the community, giving them a chance to have a good meal while socialising and making friends.

  • “Excellent. The healthiest meal I’ve had in ages”
  • “What a fantastic night! Lovely food, pleasant company and a good laugh!”
  • “It was good to meet new friends”

Online food shopping

Most of the big supermarkets have online shopping, so that your food and groceries can be delivered to your home. You can get ready made meals to make it easy to plan your meals and cook. Make sure you are OK with online shopping and payment. Be aware you will need to register and there may be a charge for deliver under a certain amount you spend.
