Plastic containers

Veggie club sells 3-section plastic dinner containers in order to reduce the number of disposable plates used. This task isn't essential, but it's a good idea, since it keeps costs down and makes a small amount of revenue on its own. The best places to find these 3-section containers is at dollar stores. The ideal containers have half devoted to the entree space and two smaller rectangles for the side dishes. The total capacity is something like 5 cups. If you buy larger containers, then people pack away food at the beginning, and it runs out before everyone goes through the line. To keep life simple, we charge $1.50 per container if you have change, or $2 if you don't. This small profit is rolled into the donations.
