We are thrilled to be providing Zero Waste sushi lunches and thank the students for their support. Thank you to Janine Brossard (ZeroWaste@lordtennyson.ca) who is Food Safe certified and stays on to wash all of the cups after the lunch. Also a huge thank you to the YMCA After School Care who is sharing their kitchen space with us so that we can make this happen!
Today was the first (of many) sushi lunches where a cup of water is provided with every order. The responses were varied and quite fun. We heard some gleeful cheers of "Yay! I get a cup of water!". We also had a number of students ask "What is this?". When we replied "It is water", some even asked "What do I do with it?". What fun!
All sushi is provided in reusable containers, water is provided in ceramic mugs, and soy sauce is in large bottles. All food waste (and those tiny slips of paper that you see) is walked home to a volunteer parent's Yard Trimmings bin.
