If you are interested in participating, please send me an email with the following information:

·        A location for the lunch (e.g. Tim Hortons on 656 Bloor Street)
·        A phone number your TASTE lunch students can call on the day of the lunch in case they are late or lost.

If you have taken on a new role since the last time you participated in TASTE, we would appreciate it if you would send us your new job title and employer or submit a new bio form.

For more information about the program or to fill out a new bio form, please visit the TASTE webpage (http://www.yorku.ca/careers/taste/index.htm) or feel free to contact me directly.
