What is Life Lessons Over Lunch?

Life Lessons Over Lunch is a workplace environment where participants meet on a regular basis to view relevant and useful messages over a free lunch. The goal of each group is to create a non-threatening atmosphere that values potential attendees and affords them an opportunity to pause and decompress in the middle of the workday.

The messages shown over lunch welcome participants to consider issues of finances, faith, family, relationships, and character. Life Lessons groups are volunteer-driven and open to everybody. 

Life Lessons currently operates more than 350 groups in over 230 different organizations around the country and overseas.

The guiding principles of Life Lessons Over Lunch are:

  • Positive Focus: Content is focused on improving employee wellness, which will positively impact the organizational culture.

  • Everyone Welcome: Does not disparage any religion, lifestyle, or spiritual belief.

  • Employee-Owned: Activities are conducted during non-company time (i.e., the lunch hour) at no incremental cost to the company.

  • Volunteer-Driven: Attendance, direction, and execution are completely voluntary.
