Educational Opportunities for Neighbors

Lunch & Learn

In January, we dove into a new expression of our meals ministry and a partnership with our neighbors.  Our Lunch & Learn program provides the space to talk about real and multifaceted issues that our neighbors face, a professional to challenge and educate, and a healthy lunch. 

We want neighbors to have the skills and knowledge to make good use of their resources. The first Tuesday of the month we  invite neighbors to lunch to explore and discuss topics such as finance, budgeting, banking, home energy, and housing rights and issues.  Community partners such as Thrivant Finance, Bluegrass Green Source, Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission and Lexington Affordable Housing Program have all lead different workshops this year.

On the 3rd Tuesday of the month, our time is spent on health and wellness topics .  In partnering with community organizations such as the Health Department, UK extension office, Glean KY, and Food Chain, we are equipping our neighbors with a wealth of information and experiences.  The Fayette County Extension Office shares about healthy eating and Glean KY highlights produce that can be found in Mission Market!
