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

A brief description of the reusable to-go container program:

Participants in the reusable container program purchase the reusable “to go meal” kit for $8.00.

The kit Includes:
1. One plastic 3-compartment hinged container
2. One set of silverware (knife – fork – teaspoon)
3. One 22 oz plastic glass

The diner agrees to return all components, reusable container, plastic glass, and silverware setting to dining service exchange location.

In return for used but clean items, the diner obtains a validation card with dated receipt to obtain all components again on their next visit to a cafeteria location.
