Looking back on #Lunchbombed!

7 members of City Pantry staff delivering joy (and food)!
Lunchbombed started as a way to add a bit of excitement to Friday lunchtime (and say thank you to all our loyal customers!) and has grown into an event that involves half the City Pantry team dashing round London in matching outfits!
Lunchbombed is a competition that sees the winner an office hero; winning a free lunch from one of our top vendors for their entire office. Underneath the mounds of delicious burritos and brownies, there is a more profound message we at City Pantry try to convey; the importance of sharing a meal with your team.
Numerous studies have extolled the virtues of eating together as a team, but sometimes in reality, with looming deadlines and impending disasters, these benefits take a back seat:
Bringing the team together as a community boosts productivity - it allows the group to talk about what they know best: your company and the business
Eating together fosters inclusion and development, and adds transparency between the departments
A final one - food simply brings happiness!
Academic studies aside, and from personal experience, we believe eating together makes a happy team. Hopefully, the lucky Lunchbombed winners from May, June and July would say the same thing!
Here are our lucky winners...
