What's on

On Fridays, the Kai Kitchen Initiative provides a hot meal to all Linden residents and friends from 12:30pm-1.30pm. It’s a chance to meet and chat with the community over a hot meal, get to know neighbours, and share ideas on how to make Linden a better place to live.

The initiative is run entirely by volunteers. Contact if you're keen to help out, or want more information.

The centre is also used on a regular basis by many community groups for meetings and other activities.
