The Big Lunch brings people together to share food, have fun and get to know each other better. It's an idea from the Eden Project, made possible by the National Lottery. Over six million people take part every year, creating and strengthening community connection across the UK.
Creating opportunities for community connection is more important than ever before, so we're calling on councils across the UK to get behind the initiative and help promote this years' Big Lunch.
We've teamed up with good causes across the UK to celebrate summer 2021 with a whole Month of Community, so communities are being encouraged to hold their events whenever works best for them between 5 June and 5 July.
Below is everything you need to know about The Big Lunch, why it is important and how Councils can encourage and support residents to join in. If you have any questions or need more information, please get in touch. Keep up-to-date with all things Big Lunch, by signing up to our monthly newsletter!
