Service users at Arden House in Leven can now look forward to delicious and healthy hot meals, prepared on site, on their daily visits thanks to a brand new kitchen . The centre, which offers day centre facilities to older people in the Levenmouth area, and had previously relied on meals on wheels for lunches at the Commercial Road site. However, thanks to cash from the People’s Millions, a competition run by The Big Lottery Fund in conjunction with STV, Arden House was awarded £50,000 to complete its kitchen project. After winning the cash back in November, after they were declared top runner up from six projects from across Scotland, the team got to work straight away, and the kitchen has now been operational since last Monday. Arden House will now be able to prepare meals for its service users six days per week, Monday to Saturday.
