Persona 4 Golden sometimes lets make a special boxed lunch for the next day. But the option to do so is not available every night, and you have to prepare each meal a certain way to get good results when you eat it.

You don’t have to be an expert chef in real life to make it work, though. Our Persona 4 boxed lunch guide has the best method for preparing each meal so you don’t have to worry about it.

Persona 4 Boxed Lunch Guide: How to Make the Best Boxed Lunches

Why Make Persona 4 Boxed Lunches?

Make boxed lunches in your kitchen to take to school the next day.

When you go home for the evening, you’ll occasionally have Nanako pop up and say she went shopping that day (yes, an elementary school kid does your shopping for you; it’s a thing). That’s your cue to get busy in the kitchen, because the fridge is stocked and won’t be full until Nanako goes shopping again.

Go into the kitchen and interact with the fridge; look and see what ingredients are there and what you can make. Making a boxed lunch takes up your evening, so keep that in mind if you’ve got something pressing you need to do, such as increasing your Knowledge for exams.

If not, it’s worth spending the time making a boxed lunch because you can share it with a friend during lunch at school the next day. Doing so increases your Social Link levels with them, which ultimately saves time later if you need an extra boost to get to the next Social Link rank.
