The Lunch Lab

Over the summer, we will have food trucks covering different daily sites providing hot meals for kids’ lunches. We partner with fun community organizations to provide activities to keep your kids well-fed and engaged. Lunch Lab serves lunch on all school-out days including summer and winter breaks, school staff in-service, holidays, and more. 

These meals are available to all youth 18 and under. The Lunch Lab provides school-aged (18 & under) kids a free meal each time they visit. All are welcome; no ID or registration is required to be served a healthy lunch.

*As per USDA updates, meals must be eaten on-site, and only one meal per kid is served.

We are different together.

At FBLC we are not all the same. And that is our greatest strength. We draw from our differences of who we are, what we have experienced, and how we think. We cultivate a dynamic and diverse work environment, one that plays a critical role in our ambitious work to end hunger, so we believe in including everyone.

FBLC is an equal opportunity employer that does not discriminate on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, creed, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, age, sex or gender (including pregnancy, childbirth and pregnancy-related conditions), gender identity or expression (including transgender status), sexual orientation, marital status, military service and veteran status, physical or mental disability, genetic information or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local laws and ordinances in the provisions of its programs, services, or activities to include discrimination against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in a discrimination investigation or lawsuit.

FBLC’s management team is dedicated to this policy with respect to recruitment, hiring, placement, promotion, transfer, training, compensation, benefits, employee activities, access to facilities, and programs and general treatment during employment.

We embrace a philosophy that recognizes and values diversity.

Our goal is to attract, develop, retain, and promote a talented diverse workforce in a culture where all employees will contribute to their fullest potential.

FBLC endeavors to make our careers site accessible to any and all users.
