Attitude of Gratitude

The 4-H Lunch Buddy program has started its 2019-2020 program year. Lunch Buddy Mentors and youth are kicking off the year with the theme of gratitude. A fitting theme as mentors and youth alike are very thankful to be together building relationships, reading, and developing social-emotional skills.

Lunch Buddy mentors are partnered with 2nd Grade students; together they build a relationship while reading books and exploring social-emotional skills that align with character development themes. The Lunch Buddy program meets the second and fourth week of each month through April:

Grand Rapids, Murphy Elementary - Mondays

Bigfork Elementary - Wednesdays


Are you interested in being a 4-H Lunch Buddy? We are always looking for more mentors!
