Here at Food Network Canada, we’ll take any opportunity to break bread with our friends, but the meal tastes even better when we’re dining for a good cause!

The Big Social is a cross-country food party from November 1st to 10th. It’s taking place in homes and work spaces throughout Canada, and will raise money for healthy food programs in low-income communities.

Anyone can host, and joining is easy. Go to to register to host a meal in your home or workplace. Once you’ve registered, you can set a fundraising goal for your dinner, and invite your friends, family and coworkers to join and support the Community Food Centres Canada through donations!

All that’s left to do after registering is finding that perfect recipe to wow your guests.
