Boomerang Lunch

Grab a dictionary and you will discover this...

A Boomerang:  A small throwing toy that is designed to return to the thrower.  

A Boomerang Lunch:   A lunch that is sent to school and then returns home at the end of the day.  It’s an important waste reduction strategy.   

Let me explain…

1,  Instead of ‘throwing out’ uneaten food at school, kids can save it to eat later.  Less waste.

2.  Similarly, kids also take home unwanted food. This is done to spark a family conversation about food likes and dislikes.  Changes to lunch menus may be needed so waste can be averted.  Less waste.

3.  Packaging is also returned to be recycled or thrown out at home. We hope it will trigger another conversation about reducing garage and packing waste-free lunches.  Less waste.

At Jackman, we are committed to making less garbage!  And boomerang lunch is a step in the right direction.
