Grab & Go

Today is the day! Countless cartons of juice and bags of unopened food purchased by students now have a second chance to fulfill their destiny thanks to the new Grab & Go system at Share Tables in the cafeteria. What would’ve just been thrown out after lunch, from chips, to oranges, to milk, will now be offered to students for free. 

Grab & Go tables will be available after lunch too.

Nutrition Services has implemented the new program for faculty and students to drop off the food they don’t want at tables in the cafeteria. Then, other students can take anything they want from the tables for free. The program’s goal is to reduce waste and hunger. 

Share Table foods will include cheese sticks, yogurt, applesauce, cereal, breakfast items, apple slices, carrot packs, raisins, craisins, uncrustables, bananas, oranges, milk and juice. Cold storage will be provided.

Caution! Be aware of allergic reactions. Food on the Share Tables may be exposed to or include allergens. This includes milk, eggs, shellfish, fish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts and soybeans.
