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.
