11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Our annual eat LUNCH give luncheon will take place on Tuesday, April 30, the 8th annual eat LUNCH give luncheon at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. We will honor Jody Adams with the Women Who Give Award. Jody is a James Beard award winning chef and Boston restauranteur. Jody has a strong commitment to hunger relief and is an active philanthropist in Boston. Jody donates her time to WLP as a weekly kitchen volunteer. She also offered her culinary talents to be our first celebrity chef in the WLP Supper Club series. She is an amazing ambassador for Women’s Lunch Place and promotes our work at every opportunity.
Seventy-eight percent of the women we serve rely on the WLP Healthy Meals Program as their consistent source of nutrition and hunger relief. Many lack kitchens and resources to prepare meals. Ongoing poor nutrition results in diabetes, heart disease, as well as depression and anxiety. Hunger is the primary reason women first visit WLP to eat a hearty and healthy meal in a supportive, safe community. Food security is often the first step towards stability and solving other longer-term challenges. Once wellness and dignity are restored, women are motivated to work towards a better life.
Our 2019 co-chairs Kay Calvert and Michelle McGee and the luncheon committee are planning a wonderful afternoon and thank you for your help in making this event a success.
