Does campus dining operations provide reusable containers for to-go food that are returned for cleaning and reuse?:

A brief description of the reusable to-go container program:
Pack&Go is the sustainable take-out program used in campus dining halls. Participants purchase an eco-friendly container for $3 (a one time charge). Individuals then tell the cashier anytime they want to Pack&Go. Meals must fit in the container.

Participants also get a cup and lid for soup or a drink and are able to take a piece of loose fruit. Containers needs to be rinsed and then can be exchanged. University Dining provides a clean container or a token for the next time patrons want to enjoy Pack&Go.
