feeding people with disabilities in their first two weeks of employment
A packed lunch is more than convenient for some of our consumers receiving services at The ILRC. For some of our consumers, it may be their only meal.
In 2017, The ILRC launched LUNCH BREAK a program empowering independence by providing the lunch for the first two weeks of employment.
- Feeds a new employee with a disability for two weeks

Our partnership with the ILRC is a shining example of those guiding principles in action.

It has truly been a win-win partnership as the individuals we employ through ILRC make positive contributions to our business and immeasurable contributions to our team and culture.”
