WHAT IS THE WELCOME DINNER PROJECT?
The Welcome Dinner Project aims to enable newly arrived people and established Australians to meet one another over a pot-luck shared meal. What you will find at a Welcome Dinner is a rediscovery of our common humanity by sharing our food, talking about our interests and dreams for the future. These interactions create a warm and enjoyable environment where new friendships, community links and supportive connections can develop. This is a great opportunity for people to meet others in their local area, without any barriers.
