Since 2009, The Big Lunch has been bringing millions of people together to share friendship, food and fun in their communities. This year they’re dishing up ideas to help make it the greenest Big Lunch yet, and have launched brand new resources to help get the party started.

The Big Lunch can be the starter that makes all the difference in our communities, getting together over a cuppa gives us an opportunity to share cultures, experiences, stories, ideas and skills – helping people grow local connections and feel a greater sense of belonging to where they live.

The Big Lunch is an idea from the Eden Project, made possible by the National Lottery, we’ve been bringing people together to create happier and healthier communities thanks to National Lottery Players, who raise £30m a week for good causes across the UK.

The Big Lunch also kicks off the Month of Community when good causes come together to celebrate community, encourage action and fundraise annually throughout June.
