2020 has been a different year for all of us. It has changed where we work, what we do, and the content that we consume. As the year comes to an end, here is a roundup of our Top 10 most read blog posts in 2020, which reveal a dramatic shift in sought-after themes this year.
We’ve seen a surge in interest for boxed lunches, as companies prioritize safety and hygiene in the office. Box lunches serve as a great grab and go solution for teams during COVID-19 to minimize contact and facilitate social distancing.
Although this blog was published in 2019, its popularity picked up in the latter months of 2020 as offices seek variety with individually packaged meals.

We recently published an article on Boxed lunches you should be ordering into the office during COVID-19 to give you even more ideas.

With the growing demand of food deliveries and the push to support local restaurants during COVID-19, there has been a rising interest in understanding the slow food movement.

This year, companies needed to re-think their holiday celebrations. Whether that be virtual or a socially distanced gathering (or even a drive thru!), there still needs to be food. This post outlines the most popular holiday treats and where you can get them. Some ideas include the fan-favourite donuts, cupcakes, and candied popcorn.
Office managers, operations teams, and health and safety committees have been hyper focused in ensuring a safe work environment for their team.

This post is a popular one during the winter months, as we return to the cold and flu season. Here is a list of flu-fighting meals for comfort and health benefits. Don’t worry, you don’t need to compromise taste with these healthy meals.
There’s no doubt that we have all been spending a lot of time binging movies and TV shows this year.

Did you know that food trucks are a $2 billion+ industry in the US?

One of our most popular blog post of all-time, this article speaks to why you should or should not go on a juice cleanse. Many of us may strive to be healthier as a new year’s resolution, but you may want to think twice before purchasing a set of juices. There are many benefits, namely cutting out unhealthy foods and getting a boost of nutrients. However, you may also experience side effects without a well-rounded diet.
Last but not least is our most read article of 2020. With increased waste among households during quarantine, some of us have become more environmentally conscious. This includes understanding the difference between materials that are compostable, recyclable or biodegradable.

That’s a wrap to 2020!
