From backpacks, lunch bags, snack tubes, water bottles, and more, SafeLunch creates stylish products that are affordable and are designed to be convenient for busy lifestyles. Through their well-designed products and HandsClean pockets, SafeLunch gives families “Peace of mind on the go”. Learn all about what makes their products absolute must-haves for school, sports, work, and everyday life.
As a teacher and a mom, Kristen Norris, the creator of SafeLunch, was always on the hunt for bags that were durable, high-quality, stylish, and also made daily life easier. She wanted designated pockets for agendas, space for extra clothes, enough space to fit a lunch bag easily and more. But where can you find quality products, built to last, with convenient designs at affordable prices? Enter, SafeLunch. SafeLunch is more than just a brand and more than a store of great products. SafeLunch is all about peace of mind for the family.
Since Kristen couldn’t find what she was looking for, she set out on an exciting adventure with her family to help busy parents and on-the-go kids by creating products that make life easier! With SafeLunch products, you’ll find smart designs with designated spots for all the essentials, including the HandsClean pocket where your family can keep the products to keep their hands clean throughout the night.
The Giving Back
Giving back was always part of the game plan for SafeLunch. They knew that they wanted to use their family-owned and run business as a way to support the community that they’re raising their kids in. SafeLunch partnered with 519Pursuit to help change lives, one backpack at a time.
519Pursuit is a local non-profit organization that helps the homeless population in London by creating relationships, handing out care packages, getting invested in the stories and lives of those in need, and helping them to change their circumstances. SafeLunch has been able to donate backpacks for their care packages and plans to continue to donate more in the future. We can severely underestimate the importance of human dignity and simply just having things like a change of clothes, deodorant, etc. and a spot to keep that. With no permanent home, many of the Londoners who live on the street have a daily struggle to keep their personal belongings safe and secure.
The HandsClean Pocket
One thing that sets SafeLunch apart from other backpacks, lunch bags, and school products is their HandsClean Pocket. The HandsClean pocket on all of Safe Lunch’s products is meant to give parents peace of mind. It’s a designated spot where sanitizers, cleaning wipes, extra masks, etc. go. It’s easily accessible so that whenever your child needs to clean their hands, they know exactly where to find what they need and don’t have to dig around, contaminating everything they touch, looking for it. It’s easy. It’s accessible. It’s quick. Plus, with the HandsClean logo, your kids are reminded to clean their hands throughout their day. When they go to eat lunch, there is a visual reminder to clean their hands first. It can help your kids build healthy habits.
The HandsClean Pocket on lunch bags was actually something that was important to Kristen when she was creating Safe Lunch, even before COVID happened! Schools have always been full of germs, and kids often forget to sanitize their hands before handling their sandwiches and snacks.
All of SafeLunches products were designed with families in mind. They wanted to create stylish pieces that were durable, high quality and were made to last. They also sought to create products that were convenient with enough space and pockets to keep all of the essentials that busy families need on hand. Finally, knowing that schools are full of germs, they wanted to create products that promote healthy sanitization habits for kids. With all of this combined, SafeLunch has created products that bring peace of mind to parents. They can send their kids off for the day knowing that they have everything they need, organized in products that are durable and they can keep their hands clean and germs away from their mouths all day long.
The SafeLunch Backpack was created with parents and busy families in mind. The square design allows for more room for everything to fit. You can easily fit your SafeLunch lunch bag, extra clothes, school essentials, and even snow pants for cold, winter days! The front pouch is a perfect spot for kids to store their agendas so that parents have quick and easy access to it. There are plenty of compartments inside the backpack for easy and efficient organization.
Plus, the SafeLunch Backpack comes with the HandsClean pocket, which is a convenient spot to keep all of your sanitization products and fresh masks. There’s no digging through backpacks to find hand sanitizer. Everything you need is conveniently within reach the moment you need it.
This backpack is also fantastic for family hikes, a day at the park, and more! It’s got plenty of room for everything you need, and even has a mesh side spot for your SafeLunch water bottle!
The backpack is made from polyester so that it’s easy to clean and can even be placed in the washing machine (although be warned that those zippers will make a lot of noise banging around in there).
The SafeLunch Backpack comes in four beautiful colours and was designed to be stylish and is made to last!
SafeLunch HandsClean Lunch Bag
This lunch bag was designed to be convenient and high-quality. It has two separate insulated compartments, giving you plenty of space for everything you want to pack and the ability to organize for a Balanced School Day schedule that has two nutritional breaks.
The bag comes with the HandsClean pocket where you can store sanitizing products. The pocket is designed with the label and words to help give your kids a visual reminder when they sit down with their lunch to clean their hands before eating. It’s also a great spot for your kids to store their masks while they’re eating.
The lunch bag is made from 100% Polyester for easy cleaning and even has a waterproof liner to help make spills a breeze to clean up. There is a removable shoulder strap for comfortable carrying. It comes in four stylish colours.
SafeLunch TouchFree Snack Containers
These snack containers were created for a safe, clean, hands-free way of eating. Simply fill the tubes with any bite-sized snacks, like goldfish, berries, candies, diced fruit, dry cereal, trail mix, or nuts, and when it’s snack time, your kids can eat straight from the tube! No need to touch the food at all! Germs stay away from little mouths and parents can have peace of mind when their kids are on the go.
The SafeLunch Touchfree Snack Containers are made from BPA-free silicone and are dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. They also come in 10 trendy colours. Forget using snack-sized baggies that are bad for the environment and use these refillable, washable, snack tubes instead!
