There is a SHARE TABLE in the cafeteria now. Next to the microwave, you will see a table with a mini fridge and a basket. Food can be donated to the share table at any time, and items can be taken as needed throughout the day. This helps keep our bellies full, and food out of our landfills, Acceptable food items: unopened milk, juice, cheese sticks, chips, crackers, apples, bananas, oranges.
What not to put at the share table: unsealed packages, half-eaten foods, fruits that spoil easily. If you have any questions, please ask the cafeteria staff.

If you are interested, please email Ms. Deveaux for more details.
