Seth Riddley ’12 came up with the idea this past semester, and its popularity has allowed Riddley to expand his concept, which he’s entitled “LunchEdu,” to multiple campuses. Of his site’s popularity, Riddley stated, “The site gets hits in the tens of thousands. To date, HarvardLunch.com has been used by about 750 students. After the site got coverage in the Yale Daily News, I started YaleLunch.com, which has been used by about 350 Yalies.” Soon, Riddley hopes to expand the mission of LunchEdu to University of Pennsylvania pending ratification by the college’s undergraduate assembly.
