New Lunchbox Vending Service in the Main Campus and Sassoon Road Campus

We are pleased to announce that a new lunchbox vending service would be offered on campus commencing March 30, 2020 (Monday) at the following locations.  The service is operated by EC BENTO.

Please take a look at EC BENTO’s Website about the background of the operator, range of F&B offerings, and how to order a fresh and hot bento.

Here are the steps for pre-ordering your lunchbox:

  1. Register a user account via the web platform or mobile app (you will need to use to a valid mobile phone number to register and receive the unique number code via SMS)

  2. Users can pre-order lunchbox as early as 9:00 p.m. on the previous day via EC BENTO’s web platform or their mobile app (iOS / Android). Users will receive an SMS with a unique number code which is required for lunchbox collection at the vending machine. The vending machines are temperature-controlled to ensure quality and hygiene.

  3. After receiving the order, the lunchbox would be prepared by a licenced restaurant or food factory just before the collection time on the day of collection.  The hot, freshly made lunchbox would be delivered to the respective vending machine by the operator’s logistics team.

  4. Users can collect the lunchbox at the designated vending machine by using the number code received via SMS. 

It is hoped that this lunchbox vending service would offer an alternative take-out lunch option during this challenging period. We will work closely with the operator and keep reviewing the range of product and the overall service provisions, in particular during the run-in period of this new initiative.
