El Gran Malón (‘The Big Lunch’) 2017: time we got to know one another

El Gran Malón is an invitation to hold Malones, street lunches, throughout Chile, on the same day, with the idea of getting to know your neighbours, sharing a meal and building the community.

The first Gran Malón de Chile was held on Saturday 8 abril 2017, and more than 11,800 people met together, in 8 regions, talking about what we could do for Chile.
