Final Project

Foodie Connect

Welcome to an immersive experience designed for international students in the UK. Our service is your connection to combat loneliness and build meaningful relationships.

Our service unites people with similar food preferences. AI-driven suggestions introduce you to English language and cultural events, enabling you to step out, make friends, and connect. Engage with acquaintances, friends, and potential companions who share your interests. Nurture these connections into close friendships, where each chat strengthens the bond. Celebrate meaningful moments, like birthdays, with our support, ensuring your friendships thrive.

It’s an invitation to embrace social interactions, cultivate enduring relationships, and enhance your study-abroad experience.
