They go back for what is called a Feast. Occasionally, to make the games more interesting, the game makers will put something each contestant desperately needs inside the cornucopia and they all can go and get it, usually resulting in a large fight.

Katniss first went back to the cornucopia because there was a feast, where every district was given something they needed urgently

Katniss urgently needed some medicine for Peeta, because he had blood poisoning and his wound was infected.

Peeta, Cato and Katniss later when back to the cornucopia to finish The Hunger Games, to participate in the final fight, where Cato dies and Katniss and Peeta are both crowned victors.
