National Vegetarian Week as a company | Just Eat for Business
National Vegetarian Week champions the benefits and deliciousness of a meat-free diet, and now your [email protected] can join in too with these veggie-friendly Pantry Packages food and drinks boxes, delivered straight to their doors.
As we enter into the umpteenth week of social distancing, it’s hard to remember what day it is. But we’ve dusted off the calendar and made a mark in our diaries to celebrate National Vegetarian Week with the best veggie food and drinks boxes around.
Endorsed by the Vegetarian Society, National Vegetarian Week (11-17th May 2020) showcases the benefits and pleasures of a meat-free diet, dispelling myths of sad lettuce leaf salads and vitamin-deficient hippies.
With celebrity supporters like Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley, and the Hairy Bikers, National Vegetarian Week 2020 is set to be a good one - even if we are still confined to our homes. Expect seven days of mouth-watering recipes, including sweet potato burgers, meatless kebabs, tofu chillis, and vegan ‘fish’ & chips.
But make no mistake - National Vegetarian Week isn’t just for individuals, it’s for businesses too. In July 2018, leading office space brand WeWork turned all its company events veggie in an effort to reduce its carbon footprint, so why not encourage more planet-friendly team lunches (at home) too?
With our meatless Pantry Packages food and drinks boxes, delivered direct to your colleagues’ doors, it’s never been easier to celebrate National Vegetarian Week as a company.
So, here are our favourite Pantry Packages boxes for a week of plant-based goodness:

GAIL's Bakery - Veggie Continental Breakfast
What better way to celebrate National Vegetarian Week as a remote team than enjoying a veggie continental breakfast from GAIL’s Bakery at home?
Your colleagues can choose between the Treats Box or the Bakery Box, which include some of GAIL’s most popular home-made goodies.
For those with a sweet tooth, the Treats Box includes lemon drizzle loaf, croissants, pain au chocolat, and more, while the Bakery Box contains a mixture of sweet and savoury options like seeded sourdough, cheese crackers, and strawberry jam.
All of GAIL’s Pantry Packages options are suitable for vegetarians - and those eschewing meat for just a week!
Spier's Salad - Tasty Meal Kits & Veg Boxes

Spier’s Salad takes salad and makes it exciting. How does roast corn, aubergine, and sundried tomato salad sound? Well, you and your colleagues now can make it at home with a Pantry Packages recipe box.
Or if you want something a little more hearty, why not try Spier’s Salad’s veggie roast dinner or mushroom bourguignon box? Getting your 5-a-day has never been easier!
