The average cost of eating lunch out is around $10.00 a day. That can be done for around $4.00, depending on what you eat that is, if you make your own lunches. That's $30.00 a week not being spent in the cafeteria. So someone can easily save $120.00 per month by brown bagging it. There, that should help the poor, starving, staffers a bit.

Pretty sad, you'd begrudge working women a break from fixing meals and a couple cups of coffee served to them.

Piling on the working poor, sure seem an odd "attempt" to garner voting support, to me....

Nice, you're ignoring cuts in cancer care, funding, and research, but are willing to tell hard working Americans to brown bag it.....

actually it can be cheaper than $4 a day for lunches if brown bagging it. and that's even if you include a thermos of coffee.
.
husband due to his job brings his supper from here to work. and he ends up eating it at his station.
.
reason I say it can be cheaper than $4. is if the person was to make a homemade soup using neckbones from either beef or pork, two types of beans, a one pound bag of frozen veggies, thickened with 1 tablespoon of potatoe flakes(or even a bit of left over mashed taters), mashed clove of garlic, bit of spices, water, using a crockpot to cook it in. optional minced onion and or a bit of dried mushroom. get one of those lil camper meal thermoses in order to bring the soup to work. and that soup can supply at least a week of meals.
.
the soup can be a bit more pricy if one adds a half cup of wild rice to the mix. either way it is made, it needs to cook for at least 24 hours. and the soup is filling.
.
freeze any leftovers about 5 days after the soup finished cooking. if there is any left. we use a 5 qt crockpot here.

How can you be so damn insensitive to the working class?? Making one’s own lunch, what has gotten into you? We live in an era on entitlements and free shit, why would you expect one to have to save money and do some level of manual labor?

that troll does not realize once you have all the ingredients for a crockpot soup. prep time is only 15 minutes. and that a crockpot can be left alone for a day while it is cooking on low. especially if the person has a outside job.
.
since the soup is a easy to make one. but at least it is from scratch.
.
plus the idiot does not realize that many a lunch can be made from leftovers from the supper the night beforehand.
.
here is a favourite casserole. needs a large roasting pan to make it in:
4 cans of tuna drained. best ones are the small cans packed in water
5 cans of cream soup. at least one being cream of mushroom
1 entire bag of inexpensive egg noodles.
1 pound bag of peas & carrots
1/2 teaspoon salt.
2 large cans of Durkee fried onions 1
3/4 cup milk best if whole milk is used
optional:
half bag of chow mein crunchy noodles
1/2 cup of cooked wild rice
1/2 cup of dried mushrooms pieces that were soaked in hot water for a half hour. also, if you use the mushrooms. you can mix the water into the mixture of the casserole.
1 tablespoon melted butter.
prep time 15 minutes
preheat oven to 350F I found out that coating the roasting pan with a olive oil spray helps with cleanup.
if you do that. need to mix everything you are mixing in a separate bowl. thing is, one of the two cans of the onions is to be reserved.
after mixing and then placing the mix into the roasting pan. place the contents of the second can of onions on top of the mix. then bake for a hour.

Yeah, I'm like that. Despicable me. If you expect other people to cook for you,(cooks need to make a living too) be ready to pay for it. Or, STFU.

I wonder, if asking questions and demeaning women adds to your inflated sense of self worth, despite your "condition" ???

more like the slew assumes that cooking a good meal takes alot more time than it does. no, most meals only take about a hour/hour 15 minutes from start of prep to serving the meal. and depending on the meal made, most of that time is spent doing other things like setting the table.
.
you can see that it assumes that even a simple casserole takes a whole day. nope.
.
you can see that it assumes that home cooking a meal is more expensive than eating out. wrong.
.
plus, it assumes that I believe that only women should cook. no, both genders should learn. and if both work outside. both should cook. in fact if the household wanted to. make all the meals on the weekends. freeze them in single portions. then microwave them when they need them. this way, they do not have to worry about what to eat for supper as well on the weekdays.
.
at least also, a homecooked meal is less likely to contain preservatives that many other places use to help keep the food fresh in their frig longer.
.
also, by homecooking one's meal. one is able to avoid any allergens that a restaurant or store might have in their foods. since they have control over what they prepare and eat.
.
this includes any seasoning they may wish to include in the food. as well as they at least know what quality their coffee they make at home is. many restaurants & stores use the lower grade coffee in their place of businesses in order to cut corners. and to garner higher income from that coffee. plus, a person who brings their own coffee has brewed it to their own strength that they like to drink.
.
also, the troll does NOT realize the satisfaction one gets from realizing they are able to cook for themselves instead of being dependent like a mere baby on someone else to cook for them.

looks like the troll forgot that I used to worked a 40 plus hour week. and then came home and did the housework.
.
this included cooking a meal every night for supper. and on weekends also making the lunch as well.
.
back then in the 90s, food costed only $30 for a week. this included what I would bring to work in order to eat. as well as any snacks.

Looks like the trollette/snag forgot, you don't work now, huh ??? I like you're pretending past working has a relationship to today's menu or time allotments...
