Commonwealth Big Lunches is an Eden Project initiative designed in conjunction with the Commonwealth Summit Unit to bring people and communities together to celebrate being part of the Commonwealth. 

In April 2018 the UK hosted the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). The Commonwealth Big Lunches were part of the official celebrations leading up to the summit, from Commonwealth Day on 12 March until 22 April but they don't stop there - you can hold a Commonwealth Big Lunch on any date that suits you and your community. It is simply about coming together, sharing food and friendship and knowing that similar events are taking place around the world.

RCS Branches hosted lunches, some in conjunction with local British High Commissions:
