Description

Celebrate Cultural Diversity Week with Australians and international students!

What makes Melbourne's multicultural communities so rich and beautiful? Discover the answer at this lunch where we welcome international students and people from migrant backgrounds to our shores. Be touched and entertained by stories of life, love and change from the people you meet. Find out how much our multicultural and multifaith communities have in common. You will be surprised!

A Community Welcome Lunch provides opportunities for new and established Australians, people from all walks of life, to share delicious food and make new connections. Cook your favourite food or bring a dish from your culture and share it with us at a potluck lunch. Taste food from around the world and exchange your family's recipes with new friends!

BONUS: Stand a chance to win a cookbook to help you eat healthy meals, build confidence in the kitchen and share your cooking with new friends at your next welcome dinner when you attend!

Entry is FREE and everyone is invited. Places are limited, so register now to book your seat!

Organised in partnership with Scanlon Foundation, Study Melbourne and Victorian Multicultural Commission. Supported by ISANA International Education Association.
