Iceland and The Food Warehouse have announced a partnership with The Big Lunch 2021 – the UK’s annual big date to celebrate and give thanks to neighbours and communities.
The supermarkets will support the nationwide event that will start the weekend of 5-6 June and continue throughout the month.
Launched in 2009 by the Eden Project, The Big Lunch connects people and encourages friendlier, safer neighbourhoods where people start to share more. Across the UK, more than six million people take part each year.
Iceland and The Food Warehouse have almost 1,000 stores across the UK and have been serving communities on the doorstep of their stores for over 50 years.
Communities from up and down the country are being encouraged to get back together and find moments to connect through The Big Lunch’s events and networks and can sign up for their free Big Lunch pack full of tips and ideas on hosting their own event.
Richard Walker, Managing Director of Iceland Foods, said: “This is a brilliant annual event that has been bringing neighbours together across the UK for more than ten years. Iceland and The Food Warehouse stores sit in the heart of communities throughout the country, and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to partner with The Big Lunch for 2021.
“The past year has been challenging for everyone and The Big Lunch will be the ideal opportunity to reconnect with neighbours, friends and family.”
