Making DIY restaurant meal kits with the family has become a popular lockdown pastime. But did you know that it's the perfect socially distant team-building exercise too?
Back in March, restaurants were forced to close their doors to curb the spread of coronavirus. But for many, that didn’t mean shutting up shop altogether.
Enter the DIY meal kit, a fun way of recreating the restaurant experience at home. A way to support local businesses without venturing out of your own abode - the perfect lockdown entertainment!
This innovation has gained popularity in and out of London, with many well-known establishments now offering nationwide delivery. You may well have already ordered one for yourself, but have you ever thought of them as a tool for team building?
Team building in the time of social distancing can feel like a mammoth task, but it’s not. Socialising, working collaboratively, solving problems, and having fun together are all possible to do remotely. (We’ve written a whole blog post about it!)
Creating food together - while physically apart - is an effective way of doing all of those things. Getting creative in the kitchen, sharing tips and tricks via Zoom, and having a good, informal catch-up is the ideal environment for stress-free team building. And who doesn’t love a tasty meal?
So, here are some of our favourite DIY meal kits that you can order via Pantry Packages to enjoy with your remote teams:
