What is a Big Lunch?
The Big Lunch is about millions of people getting together to share food, have fun and get to know each other better. A Big Lunch can be anything from a small gathering in a garden, park or driveway, to a bigger party with tables down the middle of your street.
Why host a Big Lunch?
Getting together and sharing a bite to eat over a natter is fun, it’s as simple as that. We’ve also seen that great things happen when people get together; in 2019, 4 million new friendships were formed because of The Big Lunch, and a whopping 98% felt more communities should hold a Big Lunch where they live.
