The Big Lunch is a very simple idea from the Eden Project. The aim is to get as many of the 63 million people in the UK as possible to have lunch sharing food, and having fun with their neighbours and communities. Since it launched in 2009, thousands of Big Lunches have taken place in all kinds of communities – from street parties to picnics, with millions of people taking part each year.
This year (2017) The Big Lunch will be even BIGGER as the Eden Project has teamed up with the Jo Cox Foundation creating the ‘The Great Get Together’ with community events being held across the country over the weekend 16th – 17th June. Events will be held in honour of MP Jo Cox who was murdered on 16th June 2016.
We take inspiration from Jo Cox
“We have more in common than that which divides us.”
