Cafeteria Culture and Urban School Food Alliance (USFA) invite you to join New York City, Dallas, San Diego and other USFA members – 18 of the nation’s largest school districts – for the first ever Plastic Free Lunch Day USA!
We are so proud of our 5th grade students from PS 15 Brooklyn who started the very first Plastic Free Lunch Day (PFLD), documented in our movie, Microplastic Madness. Their advocacy and actions led to a NYC-wide PFLD and now this next groundbreaking plastic-free day to take place across the entire US!
We hope your school/organization will join us in supporting this student-driven action by leading your own Plastic Free Lunch Day or any plastic free action on November 2, 2022!
We show you how_>
Together, on a single day, we will eliminate or reduce single-use plastic foodware in school cafeterias across the US to protect student health and the environment.
Will you be joining us on Nov. 2nd? Share your plastic free lunch action plan to inspire others! We'll add your school/district/organization to our website as a PFLD Participant and share additional resources.
Our collective actions sparked more plastic free actions:
- NYC Department of Education, the largest school food service in the US, will serve a monthly Plastic Free Lunch Menu this school year.
- Urban School Food Alliance, the non-profit representing 18 of the largest US urban school districts, is partnering with Cafeteria Culture on this national Plastic Free Lunch Day on November 2!
