We build partnerships. We've worked with storyteller Jumana Moon and spoken word artist Joelle Taylor to give our refugee volunteers the confidence and skills to tell their own stories in their own words. And we've established links with a wide range of campaigning and refugee support organisations.
We’re an enterprise. So when you come to a Stories & Supper event, you’re not just buying a meal, you’re also paying to keep our project up and running. For us it’s about the process just as much as the end result. We'd love you to join us.
Stories & Supper was the idea of Rebecca Tully, supported very soon by Helen Taylor to develop the project. They both have a background in community activism and migration research and were keen to challenge the negative headlines about refugees, while bringing people together over delicious food. They've since been joined by a huge number of participants, volunteers, supporters, chefs, musicians and of course enthusiastic diners. Please consider supporting what we do!
We make great global food.
If you buy a ticket, or stumble across one of our events you will be rewarded with an exciting global menu reflecting the journeys our team have made – alongside a side order of poetry, music and stories exploring the real reasons why refugees make perilous journeys.

We make friendships.
The project wouldn't exist without its dedicated team of volunteers – a diverse mix of people working together to build a community and learn from each other. Some of us are local to Walthamstow, some refugees, some migrants from nearby, others from further afield. Find out more here.
We support each other.
In the run up to our supper club events, we come together once a week in East London to plan, tell stories, learn new skills, laugh, and of course eat! We forge links with each other, and later with those who come to our events.
