What is a Lunch Buddy program?
It’s a way for adults in the community to help local elementary students succeed.
For one hour per week, a mentor is a student’s craft companion, checker opponent, and recess partner. They eat lunch, play games, and just talk. They are a confidante. They are a friend. They are a buddy.
A teacher, staff member, parent, principal, or counselor recommends students for the program who would benefit from positive recognition and additional individual attention from a caring adult.
