The Salisbury VA Community Living Center (CLC) started a new program, the Lunch Buddy Program in May 2011.  Employees volunteer to bring their lunches to the CLC and eat lunch with a Veteran.  Employees may participate as often as they like, once a week, once a month, or even daily.  It is an opportunity for staff to interact with Veterans in a casual, informal manner.
