Melbourne, we're here for you.
A new period of isolation, working from home and homeschooling: we know this latest lockdown is going to be pretty tough.
Although we know physical distance keeps people safe, there’s no doubt that it’s hard on the community and on Melbourne's cafes, which have done it tough this year.
There’s also added pressure on our environment, with an increase in single-use packaging being used for takeaway and delivery food since Covid-19 came into our lives.
We want to help!
We want to make your life in lockdown just a little bit easier, whilst also supporting our local cafes. We also want to facilitate the use of reusables and keep a focus on sustainable-living during this period.
So, to see out a fine end to #PlasticFreeJuly, we’re partnering with five of our incredible Melbourne cafes to deliver you lunch in a fresh, reusable container.
We’ll be delivering five lunches from each café per day to some lucky winners. We'll even collect the dirty container from you (no washing up: bonus!).
For a chance to win a lunch delivered to you:
- Which one of the 5 lunches you’d love to have delivered to you (#1, #2, etc)
- Why a free lunch would brighten your day
We’ll announce the winners via direct message at 5pm the day prior to delivery and arrange drop-off and pick-up.
