Al’s Exchangeables zero-waste carryout containers
UMC Food Service has new, reusable, eco-friendly to-go containers, Al’s Exchangeables. Make a one-time purchase of an Al’s Exchangeable container for $5 when you buy carryout food from the Alferd Packer Grill. When you return for more carryout, simply exchange the used container for a clean one at no additional cost. The container is yours to keep. Containers are made of reusable sturdy polypropylene, thereby reducing non-biodegradable waste. It's also wonderful for carrying food and keeping leftovers in the refrigerator to enjoy later. Ask our cashiers in the Alferd Packer Grill about this eco-friendly service, or for more details, email Robin Margolin, associate food service director.
