Fancy joining us for a big communal lunch at Emmaus?

Come along to our first bring-your-own picnic (inside) where everyone brings one dish or sweet treat to share. It’ll be a chance for Emmaus supporters, companions, volunteers, staff and the local community to get together to enjoy some tasty food, chat, relax and have some fun!

Emmaus Mossley is teaming up with The Big Lunch to see how a communal lunch will work in a charity setting. We’ll be bringing a few creative ideas to the table and contributing our delicious homemade soups and sandwiches too, so there’ll be plenty for everyone.

Every year The Big Lunch brings millions of people together right across the UK to share friendship, food and fun. The idea is simple – everyone is invited, anyone can join in and whatever food people bring to the table is there to be shared.

Alongside The Big Lunch our regular Lucie’s Café will continue selling your usual favourites. We’ll also have some inspiring reuse and upcycling ideas for those who may like to host their own Big Lunch event this summer.

The Big Lunch at Emmaus Mossley will take place on Friday 28 February from 12pm to 2:30pm. This is a free event for everyone to attend – get involved, have a bite to eat and get chatting.  All sorts of conversations, friendships, ideas and projects can take off, so why not come and give it a try?
