Fans of lunch pickup services like Killer Sandwich and Lovin Box may be interested to hear about this new lunch service from Leaves Catering, which is extremely keenly priced and also benefits good causes.
Leaves Catering are already doing lunches out of Block T in Smithfield, and are now offering a weekly pick up lunch – artisan sandwiches and salads – at different charity shops in Dublin. 10% of the turn-over is donated to the charities; the lunches have a healthy focus and cost only €4.90 per item. Like other lunch pickup projects, it’s all very simple:
- Order your lunch by 4pm on Wednesday, via Twitter, Facebook or email.
- Collect your lunch from the charity shop of choice at Thursday lunchtime.
This week they’re in the Gorta shop on Capel St, and you still have a few hours to get your order in.
I really like these lunch pickup projects – it’s a nice way to try something new, and more importantly, it’s a great way for small Irish businesses to build support. I’ll be getting myself down there tomorrow to try that there fine-lookin’ hummus sandwich, and will report back once I’ve scoffed it.
