Silicon Valley tech companies have long been known for their work perks - including free lunches.
However, two San Francisco lawyers are trying to stop the practice, saying it hurts local businesses.
Last Tuesday (local time), Ahsha Safai and Aaron Peskin introduced legislation which, if passed, would prohibit in-house cafeterias in any new office buildings and tech campuses.
The new law would not apply to existing companies located in the city, such as Google and Twitter.
Mr Safai told CBS the legislation is also about promoting a healthier work-life balance.
"We don't want employees biking or driving into their office, staying there all day long and going home. This is about getting people out of their office."
There are currently 51 in-house employee cafeterias in San Francisco.
Local restaurant owner Ryan Corridor says tech employees don't support the city's restaurants.
"We see thousands of employees in a block radius that don't go out to lunch."
Golden Gate Restaurant Association executive director Gwyneth Borden says while free food is a wonderful amenity, it means local restaurants can't compete.
