TORONTO — Scott Construction Group is launching the #LunchBoxChallenge in the Greater Toronto Area.
The initiative supports local restaurants struggling due to COVID-19 while recognizing frontline construction workers.
The program was launched in B.C. on April 20 and more than 30 construction businesses have taken part so far, purchasing and serving thousands of lunches at jobsites throughout the province, with more joining daily.
On May 20 about 30 workers at Scott Construction’s Bronte Medical Centre job site in Milton, Ont., will be served lunch from Judy’s Restaurant in Erin, Ont. located a 6 Bronte Street South at noon.
Taking inspiration from the Ice Bucket Challenge, construction industry businesses buy lunches from local restaurants for their jobsites and then nominate another company to do the same, indicates a release issued May 15, adding Scott Construction is the first company to buy lunch and will challenge Gillam Group and Green Propeller Design.
Gillam and Green Propeller will then follow suit with their own lunches and subsequent challenge.
