Food for Life Get Togethers are regular community activities that connect people from all ages and backgrounds through food. 

Food brings people together. And right now, it’s more important than ever to stay connected with one another. 

Coronavirus has had a big impact on all of our lives. Despite not being able to get together physically right now, recent YouGov research shows that social bonds are stronger than before, with 40% of people feeling a stronger sense of local community and 39% more in touch with friends and family.  

Wouldn’t it be great if these renewed community bonds became the new normal?

What could Food for Life Get Togethers look like in your community? 

There are lots ways we can come together while social distancing. We're already planning for World Food Day in October. You can sign up to host a Get Together activity at any time of year, but do make sure you follow the government guidance in your area whatever you decide to do. 

Food for Life Get Togethers, brings people from different generations or backgrounds together around good food, read our diversity and inclusion statement here.

"Almost 50% of UK kids never get outdoors with their families but at the same time, more than nine million people often or always feel lonely. Young and older people lack opportunities to bond."James Cashmore (Director of Food for Life)
