Back to School With foodora: Food Delivery Service Brings Back Your Lunchbox Favourites With a Twist

foodora is offering three lucky students a chance to win free food for the school year

TORONTO, Aug. 22, 2017 /CNW/ - It's time to get nostalgic: foodora, the on-demand food delivery service, is launching new 'Back to School Specials' that put a twist on Canadians' childhood lunchtime classics. foodora worked collaboratively with three select restaurant partners in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, and beginning today until September 20, invites customers to take a walk down memory lane by ordering new menu items that bring old favourites into 2017. In addition to the new menu items, foodora is launching its 'Win foodora for the School Year'* contest in each market, eligible for students currently enrolled at a Canadian College or University.  

"We love offering customers access to special dishes at foodora, and there's something about timeless old school lunches that makes your mouth water," said David Albert, foodora Canada's managing director. "We brainstormed some of our favourites, and worked with top restaurant partners to take lunchtime to a whole new level - whether you're a student or a busy professional looking to reminisce."

From grilled cheese to pizza pockets, to popular pastas and lunch kits, foodora worked with restaurant partners to craft thought-out menu items reminiscent of lunchbox favourites that customers may have enjoyed in their childhood. foodora customers can order from three select restaurant partners in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.
