A representative from Goated Lunchbox told Briefly News how they came up with the idea to eat traditional food and that their parents help them make the food.

"We eat as a group almost every day, and some of our lunchboxes didn't make as full as when we had traditional meals for lunches. These would usually make us full for the entire day, and we always enjoyed eating traditional meals for lunch. The purpose was to make memories at first, considering that we are reaching the last stage of our high school career, and leave a mark on our school," they said.
"It all started in mid-July when we decided to post it as content on TikTok and Instagram. We did not expect this outcome from our movement because it first started with the intention of making memories. Seeing the comments and output motivated us to continue positively impacting and influencing. We've already seen some people hop on the trend, which makes us proud."
