Team Lunch Challenge

Posted March 21, 2020 by Team LA2050

Attention work-from-homers, we've got a challenge for you – support small businesses and have a virtual lunch with your team.

At LA2050, we're lucky that we can work remotely, so we're doing what we can to support small businesses during this time and stay connected and present with our team. For the next month, we're committing to buying a weekly team lunch* from a local business that's working hard to stay afloat.

Who else will join us in our #TeamLunchChallenge?

The challenge:

  • Order lunch from a local business for your team (We have suggestions below!)
  • Tip generously
  • Give a shout out to your team and the business using the hashtag #TeamLunchChallenge (all teams are welcome - your co-workers, the teachers at your school, or your family, which face it are basically your co-workers now).
  • Challenge other businesses to take part!

* We'll be paying it forward and treating some of our grantees to team lunches!

Suggestions to get you started:
