SLU Wesley Lunches
Our Wednesday lunches have been an absolutely HUGE success over the 2017-18 semesters. We served an average of 250 students per week; a total of almost 3000 meals in just the Spring 2018 semester alone! We are convinced that this growth and success is because of Y’ALL…between your awesome attitudes and lights-out cooking, the students at SELU felt the love FOR SURE and let their friends know about it! (I have heard that we offer the best food on the campus…PERIOD!)
