    Benefits such as Income Support and Pension credit are means-tested and may reduce if a claimant receives extra income from elsewhere. Given the circumstances as highlighted in your question, it is unlikely that benefit will be affected.

    No, this is not payment as such and would not affect benefits. If the cafe owner chooses to give her free meals as a gesture of thanks for her voluntary work, then that is a matter for him or her.

    Your friend is clearly a very honest person; most people in her position wouldn’t even think about this!
