Aliciouslyvegan: Office food

Since the restaurant at IZD-Tower doesn’t offer any vegan meals other than salads and even the snack bar hasn’t positively responded to my email asking whether they would like to include one plant-based wrap (I suggested a hummus-falafel option) as well as for reasons of financial sustainability I usually bring my own lunch to work.
