The #lunchbox challenge initiative is trending across our country and the Barrie Construction Association is challenging members to participate.

The idea of the #LunchBoxChallenge is simple: construction companies buy lunches locally for their site (or sites) and nominate another company to do the same.

It all starts with one member accepting the challenge, then nominating another member to do the same, and so on and so on.

“Remember this initiative is a great way to thank the hard working crews as well as support our communities’ small local restaurants,” said BCA executive director Alison Smith.

A list of some of the restaurants open for lunch delivery in Barrie can be found here.

Participants are reminded that additional measures must be considered when ordering lunches for sites, including:

  • Ordering lunches that can be individually wrapped – do not order family-style meals that require individuals to serve themselves from large containers.
  • Asking the restaurants to include any condiments, cutlery and napkins in the individually packed lunches – do not share condiment bottles.
  • Maintaining physical distancing while individuals collect their meals – six feet apart at all times.
  • Sanitizing common surfaces before food is delivered and as needed during distribution to reduce potential cross-contamination.
