We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink." - Epicurus.

Purpose: Make your lunch break a rewarding experience for yourself and for a person with a disability by being a Lunch Buddy! Lunch Buddies, in addition to helping with simple tasks like passing the salt and pepper, enrich the lives of people with disabilities by engaging in stimulating conversation; whether it’s weather, hobbies or sports. In addition, while physical nourishment is important, when people share a meal together we share much more. We share our time. We slow down, if for just a minute, and show that we have time to take an interest in others, to care for them, and open our hearts.

Responsibilities and Duties:

A Lunch Buddy is assigned to spend time with one person with a disability to converse, share a meal, and assist as necessary with serving and clean up.

Please bring your own bag-lunch, as many individuals have special dietary restrictions.
