The Lunch Lady featured in new TV series, EMPLOYABLE ME


Dec 08, 2017

The Lunch Lady was recently featured in Season 1, Episode 6 of the documentary series, Employable Me.

This is a show about job seekers who prove that having a physical disability or neurological condition should not make them unemployable. Each of the six one-hour episodes follows two separate job candidates from the Greater Toronto Area or Montreal who want nothing more than to find steady employment.

Some have never had a job before and some have applied for hundreds of jobs with no luck!  It isn’t always easy but each job seeker is determined to overcome their challenges, help change employers’ perceptions and find their passion.

Here is the link to watch Blair's journey at Lunch Lady Chrissy's kitchen in Hamilton, Ontario:  Blair at The Lunch Lady

In this episode we see two applicants, Blair and Robert. Blair, has autism and dyscalculia, which makes it difficult for her to interpret social cues and numbers. Robert, has been blind since childhood. He speaks five languages, and has a degree in French and Arabic, but has never had a paying job in his life.

It was a great opportunity for The Lunch Lady to get involved as some of their kitchens do employ great workers with special needs.  It is very important to them that they always strive for greater inclusiveness in the communities they serve.
