Lunch Hub

Lunch Hub is a two course, sit down community lunch at $3 donation on Mondays at the Lake Macquarie PCYC. The lunch is prepared by a great team of volunteers. The meal is open to all however, we encourage people and families who are experiencing loneliness or isolation, homelessness, domestic violence issues, financial or other hardship to come along.

We like to support families and single parents with young children to join us. The lunch is family friendly and we provide a small kids corner (for under 5’s). Please note: Any guests under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult, or, have a parent or guardian sign a consent form to come along.
