  • Wrap it up - fill a tortilla with meat, cheese, and veggies, add your favorite dressing.
  • Fill a Thermos with soup or pasta
  • Send pasta or lettuce salads
  • Dip it - hummus with veggies or crackers, guacamole with chips, or ranch with veggies
  • Leftovers - send last night’s dinner, chicken and pizza make a great lunch
  • Different sandwich - put meat and cheese on a sub sandwich instead of bread or send something unusual like peanut butter and banana (use sunbutter for a nut-free option)
  • Homemade lunchables - cheese, meat, and crackers
  • Kabobs - fill skewers with grapes, tomatoes, cheese cubes, or meat
  • Quesadillas - they are taste great cold too
  • Breakfast for lunch
