Boxed lunch (vegetarian) for shuttle bus

We are a party of 4 people. We are travelling from Anchorage on day 1 and the next day are taking the shuttle to Wonder Lake at 7.15 PM. Are there any suggestions on where to get boxed lunches (vegetarian/eggetarian) for the shuttle bus trip.

Thanks in advance.

There's a Subway near the entrance of the park. There's also a couple of nice grocery stores on the way up from Anchorage if you are driving. My preference is the one off the North Eagle River exit a bit north of Anchorage. You can grab a small cooler and put everything in it (with some ice) and take it with you on the shuttle. That way you can take your own drinks as well.

Where are you staying? Just curious - some places like McKinley Creekside pack lunches and as mentioned there is a Subway or you can provide your own via the grocery store. Anything closer to the park will be reflected in higher prices.

Do try a dinner at 229 Parks - lots of amazing vegetarian choices. :)

Just curious: Is not that (7:15 PM) too late to be taking a shuttle to Wonder lake? I booked one for 10:15 AM- 10:15 PM.

Is it because of convenience or there are some advantages during evening/night times?

That was probably a typo - they probably meant am rather than pm. The last bus to leave the WAC is at 3:25pm. :)
