As return-to-work plans are developed and finalized, PCOM has partnered with LunchBots, a California-based manufacturer of durable bento box-style lunch containers, to provide faculty and staff a safe option for bringing lunch from home.
Employees at all three PCOM locations will be provided with LunchBots as part of back to campus kits being assembled to ease the transition from a work-from-home environment. Since many local restaurants may not be fully open for business when staff and faculty return to work, LunchBots provide an easy way for employees who want to pack their own lunches to do so safely.
“We are thrilled to partner with PCOM on their employee Back to Campus kits” said Jacqueline Linder, CEO of Lunchbots. “LunchBots stainless steel food containers can help keep everyone safe and healthy during these challenging times, while simultaneously reducing packaging waste.”
LunchBots are made from 18/8 stainless steel – the most sanitary and non-toxic material available for food preparation and storage – and designed to stand up to wear and tear. They are plastic-free and can be easily sterilized in the dishwasher.
The College has engaged in an exhaustive planning effort over the past six months aimed at resuming on-campus activities in the quickest and safest way possible. Following the health and safety guidelines of federal, state and local experts, PCOM has worked to make the transition back to normal as efficient and easy as possible, including offering safe food options like LunchBots.
