La Vida Local is a feature aimed at connecting you with some of the best foods and goods within Vancouver. When you buy local, you’re not just supporting these individuals, but also helping to grow and sustain the local community.
I’m VERY excited about this new service. Work can be hectic and sometimes you’re too busy to leave your desk or you sacrifice your top choice of lunch because it’s too far for you to go. What if you could get delicious food from local spots delivered straight to your work? That’s where Spoon comes in, an innovative service that delivers your choice of lunch without you ever having to leave your desk.
Founded by Sherwyn Poon, Regina Wong, and Fouad Farraj, Spoon “provides a simple personal meal delivery service for individuals who have busy schedules but still want great meal options.” If you’re indecisive as well, they’re making it even simpler by texting you only two options for the day and you reply back selecting either “a” or “b”. Past options include (my personal favourite) Finch’s Prosciutto Pear Sandwich, Culver City Salads, Crispy Pork Bahn Mi from DD Mau, and the Chicken Sandwich from Hubbub.
All meals range from $8 to $13, which includes food, tax, and delivery. At the moment the delivery service is serving employees in select downtown offices and based on overwhelmingly positive reviews from beta customers, they will be expanding in the coming months. Head to Spoon.pm and sign up now!
