Welcome Meals

Connecting new residents in Waltham Forest to their community with a free, shared meal

Have you moved to Waltham Forest in the last 12 months? Or do you know someone who has? If so, we would love to invite you to one of our FREE welcome meals listed below.

The welcome meals are a way to connect with new people in your community, find out what’s happening locally and have a shared meal together.

Each meal takes place at either The Hornbeam or one of our partner organisations. Please click on the individual Eventbrite invites for more info on that meal and to book your place!

All meals are alcohol-free and food is vegetarian or vegan.
