Working with their School Food manager and supervisor, students proposed a plan to test out a school lunch day with as little single-use packaging as possible. There was only one pound of trash at the end of all lunch periods (a 99% diversion rate) and zero trash from the kitchen!
A huge thank you to the amazing School Food Staff who worked with PS 15 K students and Cafeteria Culture to make this possible!
