Green Your School’s Food Service Program


The Five Steps to Green Cleaning in Schools is one of the most popular resources that we offer on our website. But we also offer more specialized guides for schools that are ready to focus their green cleaning efforts. Our downloadable guide to Green Cleaning in School Food Service Programs is a valuable resource for schools that want to improve the way their cafeterias are maintained and cleaned.

In food service, as in all areas of a school, meeting stringent public health and sanitation requirements is a top priority. Health and safety should never be compromised. There are also many healthier, greener and safer ways to go about meeting these requirements. Our guide covers this highly specialized area of the school in depth. Here’s just some of what you’ll find inside:

  • Descriptions of the products that are specific to food service and how to find greener versions of these products
  • Sustainable food service ware options
  • Greener food service equipment guidelines
  • Specific procedural changes that will make your food service area safer, healthier and more sustainable
