Share food. Change lives.


The Big Social is a fundraiser where Canadians cook, create, and connect during the month of October to help fight poverty and food insecurity.

Launched in November 2019, The Big Social has brought thousands of Canadians together to share food and change lives.

The Big Social supports Community Food Centres Canada and our work with 300+ partners in communities across the country. We bring people together around food—in kitchens, dining rooms, and gardens — while fighting for a more equitable society.

Here are three ways you can take part:

  1. Cook: Make something delicious and drop it off to friends or family for a donation.
  2. Create: Share your favourite recipe. Make or bake it together with your pod.
  3. Connect: Host a dinner party for a good cause and ask your guests to donate. Gather safely based on your community public health guidelines.
