Event description

Description

Flemington resident Chewy invites Australians and international students to lunch at home!

Moving away from home to another country to study can be challenging. Chewy understands this. Having moved from Singapore to Melbourne for study several years ago, she now lives in Flemington and works in the education sector. To help Australians connect with international students, Chewy opens her home to new friends from all cultures for lunch. Everyone is invited.

A 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! 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!

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

Organised in partnership with Scanlon Foundation.
