The Big Lunch is on hold

Read our full statement below

Due to the spread of Covid-19 in the UK and the restrictions now in place, we’ve made the difficult decision to put The Big Lunch on hold for a little while.  We know this will be disappointing for lots of you who have already made plans to bring your community together with a Big Lunch, but we hope you understand. 

It is more important than ever to make connections in our neighbourhoods and help each other out.  Our team is now focusing on how to support neighbourhoods across the UK, to feed and grow that community spirit.  We launched, with partners, our Community Action Response, and have ideas and resources to share to help you connect and stay positive as we get through this together.

 Community Action Response

The Big Lunch will be back, bigger and better than ever to celebrate the strength of our amazing communities together, and when the time comes, we will have even more to celebrate!

If you have any questions, please send us an email or call us on 0800 022 3357, and make sure you’re signed up for our monthly newsletter so you can keep up to date with developments. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too!
