Sodexo Offers Eco-friendly Alternatives


In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, Sodexo will be offering reusable Green Box to-go containers starting in the spring.

The reusable container can be purchased from any dining hall or Mainstreet Market cashier for a one-time fee of $5. Patrons can fill up the box with food items from a dining hall or ask that their Mainstreet order be placed in the box to take with them. Eco-friendly cutlery will be provided, but diners should bring their own Truman reusable beverage cup.

When users are ready for another meal they simply bring back the dirty container to the cashier and exchange it for a clean one. For times when they are not taking food to-go, they can trade the box for a Green Clip which can be exchanged for a new Green Box at any time.

Because customers will exchange their dirty box for a clean one, they should not deface them with writing, stickers, etc. Broken or defaced boxes will not be accepted for cleaning and/or replacement.

Dining Dollars can be used to purchase a Green Box. Five dollars is the cost of the box. Food items are priced separately.
