Back to school is an overwhelming, stressful, and expensive experience for most students – especially when it comes to food. With the average on-campus meal plan putting students out over $3000 per year, it’s even harder now than ever for students to find delicious and affordable food while in school.
Foodora is trying to alleviate a bit of that pressure from young people by revamping their menu for the back to school season and offering three lucky students a chance to win free food for the school year.
The on-demand food delivery service is launching a variety of “Back to School Specials” that put a unique twist on classic school lunches. Foodora collaborated with three restaurant partners in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal to come up with the dishes that will be available until September 20th. Students in Toronto will be able to get their hands on the following dishes:
- Crispy Chicken Wafflewich from Charidise ($11.99)
Crispy chicken, fresh greens and 100% real cheddar cheese cradled between two fluffy Charidise waffles. Comes with a side of maple syrup.
- Schmaltz Sack from Schmaltz Appetizing ($11.00)
Tuna, whitefish or salmon salad with your choice of bagel, a bag o’ chips, and special soda. Don’t forget the pickle.
- Make Your Own Sushi Pizza Lunch Kit from Saku Sushi ($11.00)
Four pieces of crispy deep fried sushi rice, topped with chopped salmon or tuna & crunchy tempura bits. Garnish with potato, chopped pickled ginger & micro greens. Enjoy with soy sauce, spicy mayo or teriyaki sauce.
Ordering any of these delicious “Back to Specials” is simple; all you have to do is download the Foodora app for iOS or Android, and place your order between August 22 and September 20.
In addition to the new menu items, Foodora launched its “Win Foodora for the School Year” contest in each city, to give eligible students currently enrolled in a Canadian College or University the chance to win free food for the school year.
To be entered into the contest, simply type the code “FREEFOOD” into the voucher section at checkout. Three lucky winners (one from each market) will be selected on September 21, 2017.
*Free Foodora for a year is the equivalent of one (1) $15 Foodora voucher per week for a total of 8 months during the academic school year from September 21, 2017 through to April 30, 2018. https://www.foodora.ca/
