Two weeks ago we launched The Great Get Together – our new fundraising campaign that asks you to step up to the plate and host a dinner party on or around Thanksgiving (24th November) to raise funds for our lifesaving work. Today we wanted to let you know about the event’s partners and the offers that they have brought to the table to help make The Great Get Together even greater.

Hosting a dinner party has never been easier, thanks to Give A Dinner Party and SimplyCook 

Give A Dinner

Give A Dinner Party is all about getting people together, through food to help raise money for charity. So it's exciting to be able to be involved with a charity that does so much to fight hunger.” Mark Viegas, Co-Founder Give A Dinner

Give A Dinner is a brand new online platform that makes it easy for you to organise dinner parties with like-minded people in your community to raise money for charity. The site enables hosts to create an online, ticketed event for their Great Get Together which can be promoted to their friends and family and also allow people to find and join dinner parties in their community. 

To help support the campaign, Give A Dinner will donate an extra £40 to Action Against Hunger for the first 100 dinner parties with four or more guests that’s listed on their site – a great way to boost fundraising at no extra cost to the host!

In this country we have much to be thankful for but we know that's not the case everywhere.  It's great that Action Against Hunger are setting aside a day for people to sit down with their friends and loved ones, enjoy a meal and know that they are helping people that really need it.” Mark Viegas, Co-Founder Give A Dinner

Why not get your friends together for a dinner party with a difference this November? 


We believe The Great Get Together Campaign is a fantastic opportunity to connect with friends & families but also start new conversations on child hunger. It's a great way to get people talking more about this issue whilst also having the chance to try some great food!” Vikki Black, SimplyCook

For those that don’t have enough time to commit to a full Thanksgiving dinner but still want the chance to take part, Action Against Hunger have partnered with SimplyCook in order to provide a simpler supper solution. SimplyCook’s boxes combine authentic flavours and easy-to-follow recipes that will have food on the table in 20 minutes or less. In support of The Great Get Together, SimplyCook are offering all new customers the chance to sign up for a trial box – just visit their site, enter the code GREAT and you’ll get your first box for £1, plus SimplyCook will donate a further £10 to Action Against Hunger, at no extra cost to you!

What's better than an evening of great food and spending time with friends and family? It may just be one meal but if every gets involved the impact has the potential to be huge. Whether you're a seasoned dinner party pro or this is your first time hosting - this is the perfect opportunity.” Vikki Black, SimplyCook
