One of our most successful initiatives is back! Join us in supporting local small businesses October 14-18 during International Credit Union Week as we celebrate CU Lunch Local. 

CU Lunch Local is a chance for credit unions to not only give back, but it provides an opportunity to share the credit union story with members of the community and increase awareness. LCUL provides everything you need to get in on the action. All we need is your participation...

  • Decide who your team leader will be and send us an email to let us know you're participating. Once you sign up, your team leader will receive an electronic participation packet with everything you need to make your CU Lunch Local a success.
  • After you receive your participation packet, use the materials to get the word out to your staff and encourage them to participate. 
  • Share your story by letting members, local businesses and your communities know about your participation before, during, and after the event.
  • Every dollar spent makes a difference, and participating is as simple as stopping at a locally owned business for your morning cup of coffee or ordering lunch from your locally owned deli. 

We welcome a more coordinated effort where a small group of staff and/or board members show up at a specified time and location for a "mob" effect, but your level of participation is totally up to you. Just make sure you report your totals because it all adds up!

Since LCUL launched CU Lunch Local, Louisiana credit unions have given back more than $115,000 to local businesses. Final totals are shared with the other 18 participating states for complete national coverage. 

Sign Up as a Team Leader!

Thank you to the credit unions that participated in 2018!
