The Camden Lunchbox, just footsteps from Camden City Hall, was a community favorite and a destination where patrons could enjoy food in a beautiful landscaped outdoor space in downtown Camden. The shipping container turned full-service kiosk at Roosevelt Plaza Park quickly became a destination. Many employees, students, visitors, and residents gravitated to the park during their lunch breaks prior to the Lunchbox closing in 2020.

“This is not only an exciting new food option in downtown but available to the entire Camden community,” said Mayor Victor Carstarphen. “I had the chance to grab a bite to eat from the Lunchbox.  It is quality food and at a good price. It is also quick and simple to order food.  I am sure the Camden Lunchbox will be a success.”

In February 2022, Signatures 315 Restaurant Group found its new home in the Camden Lunchbox (CLBX), headed by Camden native Chef Darrell Gaffin. Chef Gaffin’s latest culinary venture brings him back to his hometown of Camden, New Jersey. Darrell is lending his name, his recipes, and his unique expertise to the Lunchbox. Under the new management of Signatures 315, CLBX will be offering a delicious quick-serve menu, featuring the 5 favorite “S’s”- Sandwiches, Salads, Soups, Sides & Smoothies, guaranteed to satisfy everyone’s taste buds!

“It is a to-go spot, and it is not just for lunch,” said Damon Pennington, Owner of Signatures 315 Restaurant Group. “It’s all about convenience and quality. Customers can order online for pickup or curbside-to-go, as well as ordering via DoorDash, Grubhub, and Uber Eats for quick delivery options.”

The Camden Lunchbox is open Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. For more information and to order today call 856-412-3767 or simply go to
