A coalition of the largest school districts in the United States announced the rollout of compostable, rounded school lunch plates, made by Huhtamaki in Waterville, ME.


The Urban School Food Alliance, made up of school districts from Miami-Dade, Dallas, Orlando, New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago, was created in the summer of 2012 to combine purchasing power and coordinate menu creation while working together to improve quality and incorporate sound environmental practices.


“This news is a game changer,” said Alliance Chairman Eric Goldstein and chief executive officer of School Support Services for the New York City Department of Education. “As leaders in school meals, we’re proud to create a product that students will not only find easy to use, but one that also protects the environment for many years to come.”
