RioCan and partners buy lunches for 1200 construction workers across Canada as part of the #LunchboxChallenge

TORONTO, July 16, 2020– RioCan teamed up with its development and construction partners this week to participate in “The Lunchbox Challenge” on a major scale, delivering more than 1,200 lunches at nine development sites across Canada. The challenge, which began in BC and has since spread across the country, asks owners and construction companies to buy lunch for their workers on site to encourage and recognize their hard work. The meals are purchased from local restaurants and tenants who may be struggling due to COVID-19.
