LNG Canada is one of two platinum sponsors for this year’s #lunchboxchallenge during B.C.’s construction month in April.
Introduced by Scott Construction last spring, the #lunchboxchallenge is a way to help restaurants that have been affected by COVID-19.
This year, BC Construction Association (BCCA), initiators of construction month, and LNG Canada have jumped on board with Scott Construction hoping it will start a pass-it-on type challenge and spur lunchtime events for construction sites across B.C.
“It’s wonderful to see B.C.’s construction industry go out of its way to support the wider community and reach out to local restaurants that may be struggling to get through the COVID-19 pandemic intact,” said Ian Tostenson, President and CEO of the BC Restaurant and Foodservices Association.
By completing an application online, construction company owners can earn anywhere between $250-$500 to treat their employees to a meal out at a local restaurant of their choosing.
“Our industry was declared essential throughout the pandemic, and while it’s been a tough year, we’re proud of how well we’ve done and keen to give the workforce a bit of recognition,” said Chris Atchison, BCCA President. “We’re grateful that we were able to keep working. The restaurant industry hasn’t been so fortunate, so it’s good to do a little something to help the local restaurants who are also working hard in every community.”
Construction Month 2021 is sponsored by the BC Construction Association, the Northern Regional Construction Association, the Southern Interior Construction Association, the Vancouver Island Construction Association, the Vancouver Regional Construction Association, LNG Canada, The BC Construction Safety Alliance, BCIT, Coastal GasLink, GCPay, WorkSafeBC, BC Housing, BC Hydro, the Construction Labour Relations Association, Fortis BC, the Industry Training Authority, BCCA Employee Benefits Trust, BCCWITT, The Builders Code, CGI Constructors, and COCA BC.
