LunchBucks

 

2023 Update: LunchBucks program has ended, as of November 15.

Check back here for updates on 2024!

 

 

How it Works

Receive. Eat. Repeat. It’s that easy!

Receive. Head to one of the four pick-up locations below to get your voucher on a Tuesday or Wednesday between 11 am – 2 pm (one per person per week). Claim your voucher by providing your name, email and zip code on-site. 

Eat. Take your ticket to a participating Downtown restaurant and receive $10 off your dine-in or carryout order. Remember, vouchers are only valid on Tuesday and Wednesday from 11 am – 2 pm on the week they are issued.

Repeat. Stop by every week to eat your way through new and tried-and-true restaurants around Downtown.

Important Details

  • We’ll only be distributing 200 tickets per week and we expect them to get snatched up quickly! When we say “while supplies last” we mean it, so don’t wait to get yours each day.
  • There’s no such thing as a free lunch. While this is a great, low-cost way to be reintroduced to delicious Downtown dishes, be prepared to pay for the remainder of your meal and please tip based on the pre-voucher value of your meal. Remember, this is about supporting our small businesses!
  • Vouchers are only valid at participating Downtown locations listed on our website. Check back each week for the latest and greatest list of locations.
  • LunchBucks can’t be used on orders including booze, so you’ll have to imbibe on your own dime.
  • You must be at least 18 years old to claim a LunchBucks voucher.
  • We’re going retro with these rewards. Tickets must be picked up in person and redeemed in real life for dine-in or carryout orders. They can’t be applied to online orders.
  • All distribution locations will be reserving a portion of their weekly vouchers for Wednesday. While quantities will still be very limited each week, we will have some LunchBucks available both days. 
  • This means we’ll have fewer LunchBucks to distribute on Tuesdays. We’ll do our best to ensure queues don’t exceed available quantity, but we appreciate your understanding if you’re unable to get a voucher.
  • Tickets run out fast, so some distribution sites may provide queue numbers. Please do not leave the line when you receive a number; receiving a number does not guarantee a LunchBucks voucher.
