Google is well known for its staff perks, and has been credited with starting the trend of high-quality, free corporate catering.

When staff return to the office post-pandemic, they’ll be able to get their free food again – just not from Google’s famous buffet.

The company’s cafeterias are moving from buffet style to boxed, grab-and-go meals and individually packaged snacks, it told The New York Times.

It would also close its massage rooms and fitness centers, and suspend shuttle bus services.
