Become a member

Your friend Celia has invited you to become a member. Celia is a member too, but she’s also a table leader and those you invite to share your meals like refugees and older people are your guests.

At each meal 3 members pair up with 3 guests and are led through the recipe steps by the table leader. At the same time, the table leader will ask everyone on the table a question like ‘What is your favourite meal?’ or ‘What are you looking forward to next week’ to help everyone get to know one another.

People tell us the questions really help to get everyone talking and lead to all sorts of interesting conversations :-)


Your membership is £5 each month which covers:

  • Food and recipes for everyone around the table each month

  • All the cooking equipment your team will need

We ask you to commit to being a member and to paying £5 a month for at least six months (about 3 or 4 meals). After this, you’re free to cancel at any time, but we don’t think you will because Local Welcome meals are the best!

Our members tell us that their membership is about more than just a meal for them, it’s a way to meet new friends and really connect with their community.
