The Big Social is a fundraiser where Canadians share food to change lives. This October, cook, create, and connect to help fight poverty and food insecurity.

Entertain some good!

Together, we can raise $100,000 to give low-income Canadians better access to healthy food and to programs that build health, belonging, and empowerment. Join us!
