I organized many meals on campus while attending the University of Delaware and also in work settings during various internships over the past few years. But since graduating in May 2014, I’ve been working on LunchBunch from home which means a lot of meals by myself. So how is LunchBunch useful for those of us who aren’t on a college campus or working in an office? Here are a few of the ways I use LunchBunch that might help you, too.
A pizza place in Pittsburgh hosts a trivia night every Tuesday, and one of my friends was the trivia host there for a while. A bunch of us would go most weeks to eat pizza and compete in the trivia, and LunchBunch was a great way to see who was going on a particular night. The time and location were already decided, and seeing everyone’s RSVP helped us to decide if we should go or wait until the next week when more friends could make it. Trivia is a specific use case, but LunchBunch is helpful for planning similar weekly events.
You just returned home after running errands, and you have some free time. There’s a new restaurant you’ve been wanting to try out, so you hop on LunchBunch to see who wants to join you. You know it’s last-minute, and it’s too much work to message people individually. With LunchBunch, you see who is hungry and available, and in no time, you’re eating at a new place with a friend or two!
Besides giving you the ability to see who’s available right now, LunchBunch can help you to schedule meals in advance. If you schedule lunch or dinner with a group, it’s easy to track who’s going and update the time or location if plans change. Additionally, when you’re getting ready to head out, you can check for hungry buddies who weren’t included in the original invitation so they don’t feel left out.
What are the unique ways that you use LunchBunch? Do you have suggestions for how we could make LunchBunch even better for you? Please let us know in the comments below!
