Hackney Lunch Clubs

A lunch clubs service that decreases social isolation and promotes the health and wellbeing of older people in Hackney. All aged 55+ are welcome to attend the lunch clubs.

Hackney’s lunch clubs provide:

  • Healthy, filling and nutritious lunches starting at just £2.50
  • Social activities such as playing cards, mahjong and dominoes
  • The opportunity to take part in local outings
  • Longer trips, for example to the seaside.

There are lunch clubs at venues across the borough. Please contact the relevant lunch club directly if you are interested in joining.
