Bagged lunch ideas- NO FRIDGE OR MICROWAVE!

Yes, you read correctly.

I am starting a new job where we have NO fridge or microwave. I absolutely refuse to pay to eat out lunch every day, so I'm searching for things other than sandwiches that can potentially be eaten as-is or not be disgusting if kept in a lunch-box type soft-sided cooler with a freezer pack. I feel like a gradeschooler (thermoses, anyone?)

I really sort of loathe most cold-cut style sandwiches, and I imagine cold pasta salads will get old real quick. I also don't trust a thermos of soup to stay warm longer than a few hours (I might be eating 5-6 hours into the day.)

Is this impossible?! If all else fails I'll go to my old college year throwback lunch of a bag of rold gold pretzels, but thats not exactly what I have in mind for daily sustenance when I'm on my feet for 8-9 hours at a time...
