No More Plastic Trays in the Cafe  Cafeteria Stops Offering Trays for Lunch

For around the past two months, regular school lunch trays have not been available for students to use for their foods. Instead, take-out boxes are being split in half for use as single plates and small disposable paper plates. Recently the cafeteria has offered small styrofoam plates as well. 

“I prefer the old trays, because they were larger,” Junior David Cameron said. “It was easier to eat lunch on it.”

Students suspect that the school is either saving money by using more inexpensive plates, or choosing to put that money somewhere else. Though a minor issue, it does create an inconvenience for students traveling from the cafeteria to other locations for lunch.

“It has made me very very upset. It’s difficult,” said Junior Yomna Youssef. “The school’s cheap.”

Yomna and many other students eat lunch on the second floor, so they are carrying piles of food on small plates from the cafeteria up the steps to an available room.

The school did not announce the change, but the assumption is that it is cheaper and less time-consuming to not wash and store plastic lunch trays.
