Sustainable Lunchrooms

Sustainable practices are possible in every kitchen. With an ever-increasing focus on environmental impacts and sustainable methods, school food presents a major opportunity for positive change. Any school or district can start to implement sustainable practices, although more extensive improvements will require a dedicated effort.

Key benefits of Sustainable Lunchrooms:

  • Reduced long-term expenditures in serviceware supplies (e.g. reusable lunch trays)
  • Reduced food and packaging waste
  • Educational opportunities for students to learn about the connections between the food they eat and the larger environment
  • Lower food cost with plant-forward recipes, extra funds can reallocate to higher-quality ingredients
  • Limited use of harsh cleaning chemicals
