North American Credit Unions Support Local Restaurants in 7th Annual CU Lunch Local
From morning coffee and donuts to lunch buffets, pizza and happy hours, dozens of credit unions across the United States and Canada participated in this year’s CU Lunch Local. For the past seven years, CU Lunch Local has continued to live its mission with one thing in mind: encourage credit unions to buy lunch local on the third Tuesday of October as a way to demonstrate the impact credit unions have on their local economies.
“CU Lunch Local is not only about supporting our communities,” said Bill Beardsley, president/CEO of Michigan Business Connection. “It’s a fun and easy way to make an impact locally. Participating organizations have the opportunity to educate businesses about the credit union difference and get to eat some great food too. It’s a win-win.”
On Oct. 16, credit unions took to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, showcasing their meals and restaurants of choice while supporting CU Lunch Local movement. This year, the event welcomed even more credit unions from across the United States including the first international credit union from Canada.
Jessica Richardson-Isenegger, who helped establish and coordinates the annual event on behalf of Michigan Business Connection, is hoping to sign up even more state leagues and credit unions in 2019, which will be held on Oct. 15, 2019.Go to main navigation
