We are partnering with NightShift Ministries and their food truck to bring a premium hot lunch to our men's conference. This does increase the price of lunch, and ISI is investing in each lunch sold, but the net profits go to support the excellent work of NightShift as they reach out to support the less advantaged. Your cost for lunch is $12. Tips and donations are encouraged.
