National Pack-A-Sack Lunch Day

Did you know that small steps like packing your lunch three times a week can make a big difference? You could save more than $9,000 over seven years with a five percent investment return.

In the spirit of taking small steps that can add up, we encourage you to participate in the inaugural National Pack-a-Sack Lunch Day by bringing in a bag lunch on Wednesday, October, 23.

Calculate how much you could save by packing your lunch.

On October 9, 2013, Washington, D.C., Mayor Vincent Gray, passed a proclamation recognizing "Pack-a-Sack Lunch Day" as a national effort and encouraged all D.C. residents and public employees to participate.
