More about Lunch Positive
The lunch club space
The lunch club is a community space for everyone with HIV. We have a coffee and lounge area, and a dining area for lunch.
The space belongs to everyone who visits, so please make it your own. You’re welcome to sit where you want, move around and chat, whatever is good for you. We hope you’ll use this to meet new people, make new friends and be able to share peer support.
The lunch club is provided entirely by volunteers.
What we serve
We serve enjoyable and quality food – each meal is well balanced and incorporates a persons ‘5 a day’ portions of fruit and vegetables.
We have a healthy eating policy which promotes healthy cooking methods, and we try to respond to the needs of people who may have common food allergies.
How much does lunch cost?
The lunch club relies entirely on charitable funding.
We ask for a donation of £1.50 for lunch – which helps to cover the cost of the food we have to buy.
Everyone involved in running the lunch club works voluntarily, and we are extremely grateful for all donations which we receive to keep the service running.
Other things we do
There is also plenty of information, advice and support with healthy eating and nutrition, as well as information on other local groups and services.
Throughout the year we run healthy eating and cookery events – for anyone who is interested in joining in with this.
We are always keen to hear members views and comments, and have a comments box, and hold occasional members meetings.
We hold picnics and outdoor events, and work with other HIV groups for social occasions.
We have an absolute commitment to client confidentiality and safety, and run the lunch club on the basis of acceptance and respect for everyone who uses the service and volunteers for it.
