BROOKLYN - A lunchtime group is uniting new people over a middle-of-the-day meal in DUMBO.

Lunchmeet was created by Adriana Torres, who works for a small tech company that doesn't have many employees or lunch options, so she came up with her own.

Torres says she decided to create a website to spread the word about getting together during work breaks, and the idea took off.

The daytime group now meets in Brooklyn Bridge Park every Thursday at 1 p.m. to relax, socialize and share some food. No invitation is required.
