St. Bonaventure dining launches reusable to-go containers

Program requires one-time refundable $5 deposit.

Feb. 20—Aramark at St. Bonaventure University, in New York, are now offering reusable to-go containers for students.

"The reusable container program was a collaborative effort between ARAMARK and students to alleviate crowded dining facilities at peak times as well as offer a solution for students who have unique academic or athletic schedules that prevent them from having the opportunity to dine in the dining facility," Amy Vleminckx, senior food service director, told the student newspaper.

In order to participate in the program, students must pay a one-time refundable $5 deposit. After that, the student may bring the container to Hickey Dining Hall, use a meal swipe and leave his or her ID at the register. After filling the container, each student can pick up his or her ID and leave the dining hall to enjoy their meal elsewhere.
