The Big Lunch

The Big Lunch logo

The Big Lunch is about millions of people getting together to share food, have fun and get to know each other better. It's a simple idea - that for a few glorious hours, cars stop, shyness stops and neighbours come together in the street to meet, greet, share, swap, sing, plan and laugh. Save 1-2 June in your diaries!

The Royal Voluntary Service

RVS

Royal Voluntary Service is one of Britain’s largest volunteering charities with 20,000 volunteers providing much needed support in hospitals and in the community. Their mission is to inspire people to give the gift of voluntary service to meet the needs of the day. As a partner in Food for Life Get Togethers’ delivery, they’re supporting local communities to set up new, volunteer-led groups to bring people together over good food.


Incredible Edible Networks

Incredible edible

Incredible Edible creates kind, confident and connected communities through food.  Community led groups use food as a way to bring people together, share learning about growing and utilising fresh healthy food, as well as promoting local food producers, with the overall aim of creating a kinder prosperity. Our groups show how ordinary people can work together to transform their own landscapes and turn disused plots into abundant sources of healthy food.


Generations Working Together

Generations working together

Generations Working Together (GWT) has the main aim of working towards creating a fairer Scotland where people of all ages, but particularly the young and old, work together to challenge stereotypes, build social cohesion and mutual respect and build stronger communities founded on the assets of all of its members. GWT has developed local intergenerational networks, training opportunities and a library of materials/resources to support and inspire organisations and partners to take action and enhance their intergenerational practice.

Food Sense Wales

Food sense Wales

Food Sense Wales is part of Cardiff and Vale Health Charity. Built on the foundation of Food Cardiff (part of the sustainable food cities network), it is influencing how food is produced and consumed in Wales by facilitating the integration of policies that intersect the food system. It has strong working relationships with public, private and civil society organisations operating in and cutting across the food space in Wales and the UK.

Generations Working Together provides information, delivers support and encourages involvement to benefit all of Scotland’s generations, by working, learning, volunteering and living together. GWT believe intergenerational practice aims to bring people together in purposeful, mutually beneficial activities which promote greater understanding and respect between generations and contributes to building more cohesive communities. Intergenerational practice is inclusive, building on the positive resources that the younger and older have to offer each other and those around them.
