Fooda Infographic Reveals How Americans Spend Their Lunch Breaks


Fooda, an office lunch service company, surveyed 500 people to find out how Americans are spending their lunch breaks.

It found that, on average, those in media and communications took the longest lunch breaks (approximately 58 minutes) while people in the food and beverage industry took the shortest breaks (30 minutes).

According to survey results, 90 percent of people buy lunch at least once a week, and 85 percent bring lunch more often than they buy it. Results showed that men are more likely to buy lunch than women.
