Plastic Free Lunch Day
Cafeteria Culture is once again teaming up with the Urban School Food Alliance (USFA), representing 18 of the nation’s largest school districts, for a special April edition of Plastic Free Lunch Day USA. Be inspired to join millions of public school students across the US for this special Earth-month climate action right in your cafeteria!

Why host a Plastic Free Lunch Day? U.S. schools serve 7.35 billion meals annually. Those meals are packed with single-use plastics and make a significant contribution to the U.S. plastic waste stream. Plastic Free Lunch Day is a great way to start eliminating unnecessary single-use plastics. If every school in the U.S. reduces 2 pieces of plastic per school lunch each day, that would amount to 10 billion pieces of plastic per school year!
