WNYC’s Hack Your Lunch Challenge

Food Fridays has begun, and this year, we have a cause: Lunch.

It’s what many of us look forward to from the minute we wake up in the morning. So why do we treat it with such disdain? Spending tons of money on roasted turkey and meatballs at the hot buffet, or ordering chopped up pieces of lettuce that pass for a meal? By some measures, eating out adds an average of 134 calories to your meal – even more if you go for fast food. And it’s expensive: Americans spend about $936 a year eating lunch out—with Northeasterners spending 14% more than the national average. That means you, New York.
