Grubhub also conducted a survey that revealed that in New York City, 72% of full-time employees called lunch “the most important meal of the day” (compared with 64% of people working nationwide). Despite this, 69% of working New Yorkers admit they have skipped lunch because they were too busy.
Additional survey findings uncover four-in-ten workers nationally say they take fewer breaks than they did two years ago. Yet, Americans cite that taking time to enjoy a lunch has benefits beyond just satisfying their hunger, in particular:
- 87% of workers across the U.S. agree they look forward to lunch as a needed break during work, which rings true for Gen Z workers too (86% agree)
- 50% of New York workers and 47% of workers nationally say that having a true lunch break improves their mental well-being and half (51%) of U.S. workers report lunch makes them feel re-energized and ready to take on the rest of the day
- More than 1-in-5 (22%) U.S. workers say lunch is the most social part of their day
