not all words in one language  have the exact equivalence to the target language.  

How about ' home-made lunch'?

Re: "盒饭 not 饭盒"

If "一盒饭" does not mean "a box of rice(cooked)" or "a box containing a meal", what does it mean then?? I have never heard of "盒饭" to mean "table d'hote(set lunch/dinner/meal)" in Hong Kong before.

盒饭 = 快餐

we cann't  take  the  word  literally ,
when  we  say  盒饭 we mean  "snack"
