Reusable food packaging

Beginning after Labor Day 2019, PAUSD Food Services will begin serving student meals at elementary school sites using reusable dishware and cutlery.  This transition, which will be the first phase in a multi-phase plan to move all sites to reusable food service items, will keep PAUSD in alignment with the City of Palo Alto’s zero waste goals. Students, who are already familiar with the three sort waste system, will return their reusable food service items to rolling carts outfitted with red bins which will be added to three sort stations at their campuses. PAUSD anticipates significant waste reduction as a result of this move to reusables.
