UBC Hot Lunch celebrated 10 years of great food, speakers and connections in 2023/24 and we looking forward to the next decade ahead!

UBC Hot Lunch Lunch - Celebrating 10 years!

Established January 2014

We are inviting UBC staff to join us in celebrating our 10 year milestone – it is you who made this journey so worthwhile. It was in January of 2014 that we launched our inaugural session with our first speaker, Vice-President of Human Resources, Lisa Castle. It was apparent from the first session that something unique and special was happening at these sessions and it was gratifying to see this initiative being embraced by staff from across campus and from different bargaining groups. By the end of that term, Hot Lunch had doubled in size.

Over the years we have had representation from every staff employee group and have grown greater representation from employee groups at session; work we wish to continue. We have had speakers who have informed us, touched us and made us laugh and often showed us a glimpse of the person behind portfolio leadership.
