"Box lunch" in Vilnius

Is there any place in Vilnius which sells a "box lunch," meaning a prepacked lunch with salad and/or bread and cheese(maybe meat) or something like with with some other small foods. We need to buy 10 of these to have ready for a travelling group which doe snot have time to sit down for a meal. Thank you

If i understand you correctly, you're talking about prepacked lunch, prepacked salad and prepacked dairy products? Available at any grocery store (more at larger ones). Though if you're going to travel you have either to eat everything in several hours (dairy products in ~1 hour), or to have a fridge to keep them in. Or buy specifically imported ones (not locally made), they are all sterilized and stuffed with "synthetics", i think they never spoil. I mean, it was +25C today, it's impssible to keep such food unspoiled during the trip, even during 1 day, probably.

Lithuanians also are traveling and also often do not have time to sit down for a meal. Dark bread, smoked sausage, "skilandis" - this is the food which doesn't spoil and remains fresh, edible and filling. No need to eat much.

Instead of salad it's better to buy apples, oranges, cucumbers etc (fruits and vegetables), they do not spoil rather long time too, you just have to wash them (eg apples and cucumbers).

I mean, I do not intend to teach you, all that salad and other prepacked food is ok if you eat it, say, within 1 hour (especially given that heat like today), but for longer trip (or expedition) it's better to prepare more essentially. So if you're traveling by car and have a fridge inside, it's everything ok, prepacked lunch available at any larger supermarket, and if you don't have where to keep it in the cold - rely on traditional lithuanian products suitable for travels.
