    Where downtown, as a lot of food degrades seriously during travel time.

      Depending on where you are serving lunch downtown, I would choose a good restaurant nearby and ask them if they would put together a "take-out" lunch, regardless of whether they normally do so. For example, if it is anywhere around the queen/university area, I would contact Nota Bene, which probably could do, if they are willing a fabulous luncheon of food items that would travel well, perhaps a series of small appetizers would also work well. I would probably avoid pizza as that usually suffers from travel time to serving time.

        When my friend was in hospital I brought soup and sandwiches from Ravisoups one day, and sandwiches and salads from Mercatto another. Both were appreciated... especially compared to hospital food :P Rodney's By Bay also does takeout I believe, most of it is not food designed to travel necessarily but the lobster roll might do quite nicely

          I've seen people get panini for takeout at Negroni before, though I can't say how well it holds up.
