It’s Brown Bag Week here on Small Kitchen College!
We at Big Girls, Small Kitchen are big believers in the benefits of bringing your lunch with you to work (we have a whole chapter about “packing the quarter-life lunchbox” in our book!). Whether you love it or hate it, you know that come noon, instead of hungrily browsing SeamlessWeb or roaming the streets of the Midtown food desert, you could be sashaying to the company kitchen, taking out your brown bag, and revealing a mouth-watering, healthful, and well-rounded lunch.
Starting today, we’re challenging all you post-grads starting first corporate jobs, undergrads doing summer internships, and office-bound “old hats” like our fellow twentysomethings to get in the habit of packing your lunch. All week we’ll be partnering with BuiltNY to give you tips, recipes, and giveaways about lunch on the go. Better yet, if you share your brown bag creations with us, you’ll have the chance to win some of the awesome lunch and bottle totes pictured above and below!
We have a whole menu of events to come this week as part of the Brown Bag Challenge. Enter to win another slew of BuiltNY prizes on facebook and twitter by posting a picture of your brown bag lunch at any point this week. And make sure to join the conversation on Wednesday at Noon as we host our first-ever Live Twitter Chat with The Daily Meal, using the hash tag#brownbag.
Become one of our official blogger sponsors by posting about your favorite lunchbox item and encouraging your readers to join the SKC Brown Bag Challenge! You can see the list of supporting bloggers in our What’s New section; be sure to come back and check out all the great dishes as links are added throughout the week!
