HANDY's "Lunch Box" is a bi-monthly luncheon held at HANDY, usually falling on the 3rd Friday of the month.

It's free of charge, very laid back and the best way to get a sense of the heart and soul of HANDY. We always have young people and life coaches involved in the discussion. In addition, the "Lunch Box" has proven to build relationships among community members and spark ideas for enhanced collaboration and partnerships. Lunch, of course, is provided.

Space is limited, so please RSVP to Phyllis Tinker, PTinker@HANDYinc.org if interested.
