Living next door to Alice
Many offices have coffee machines and bean bags, but one thing they don't have, is Alice.
From what started as an obsession for eating and talking about food came the birth of Fun Food Friday. Fun Food Friday is a weekly morning tea (sometimes lunchtime feasts provided for the whole company) held by the extended Programmes team in Wellington. It was set out to be a casual initiative to take some time out away from our computers to drink tea, eat food and maybe try something new. But when Gluten Free extraordinaire, Lara Purcell, turned up to the first morning tea with left over Roast Beef with homemade Béarnaise sauce on homemade Gluten Free crackers, a dream turned into a reality and everyone was on board. From Mad Hatter’s tea parties and Mexican Fiestas to Midwinter Christmas and Christmas feasts, the Fun Food Friday team have turned the dial up to make their Friday morning get together a real team bonding experience. The team also extends their versatile food knowledge through food related quizzes or testing their knowledge via the daily Stuff quiz.
Fun Food Friday is one of the many food and morning tea initiatives at Loyalty New Zealand. Other well renowned variations include ‘Cooking with Kirsten’, ‘Gelato Shouts’, Summer BBQ Fridays’ and the long running ‘Tea Tuesday’ held by the Lab 360 team. Because after all, food does bring everyone together.
