Yumbo School Lunches & Meat Free Mondays

Yumbo School Lunches & Meat Free Mondays

A new subscription service for busy parents in Christchurch has just been launched by musician and cookbook author, Flip Grater. Yumbo makes healthy lunchboxes and delivers them directly to kindergartens, preschools and primary schools.

Currently based in Sumner, Flip has been taking a break from her music career to care for her daughter and saw a gap in the market for school lunches -
“We’d been living in France - where schools have chefs making amazing meals for students, so when Anaïs started preschool in New Zealand I realised a lot of parents find it tedious to make lunches every day, especially if they want to avoid processed and packaged foods.”

“We deliver by 10am so busy parents can simply send their children off to school knowing they will receive a super nutritious meal by morning tea time.”

As of March, Yumbo will also be delivering adult lunchboxes into offices in the Christchurch CBD every Monday.

“As soon as we sent out our first kids lunchboxes, parents started asking for an adult version so we’ve started offering adult lunches once a week too. We decided to tie it in with Meat Free Mondays - it’s a great concept everyone can get behind - starting your week with a healthy plant-rich meal.”

Yumbo’s Meat Free Monday lunch delivery is available from March 5th. School lunches are available now at selected schools, with the delivery areas expected to expand over the year.
