This whole lunch programme wouldn't have been possible without the enthusiasm of the school Enviroschools team.

Early in the lunch setup process, we talked to Gina Dempster from Wanaka Wastebusters and Simon Williams from Enviroschools.  The big question was, how are we going to deliver the lunches?  We quickly realised that if we had 200 orders a day and used recyclable or compostable plates, there would be a lot of waste.  We researched alternatives and decided Sistema containers are the perfect solution.  We can sterilise them every night and use them again and again.

Designing the Munch Your Lunch logo

Designing the Munch Your Lunch logo

Sistema did us a great deal on the containers.  We decided to brand them and a group of students worked with Simon on ideas for the logo and name for the project. 'Munch your lunch' was suggested by the children and a logo was designed by Tayla from Room 19.

In order for the logo to be printed onto the lunch boxes it had to be digitised. Simon worked with the students as he converted the drawing on a piece of paper into a digital image suitable for printing. They loved seeing all the different parts of the process and were amazed at just how much work has to be done to take a drawing on a piece of paper and turn it into a format suitable for printing onto hundreds of lunch boxes.

Every day the lunches will be delivery to school just before lunchtime.  After the children finish eating, a volunteer lunch monitor will collect the uneaten food which will go into the school's Bokashi composting system.  Simon and the Enviroschools team will use the compost in the school's vege gardens and hopefully some of the garden produce will be used in the lunches.

The Munch Your Lunch programme was the idea of the Wanaka Primary School Future Trust.  The Trust organised contracting a caterer, purchased the Sistema lunchboxes, set up the ordering website, and worked with the Enviroschools team.  With every lunch purchased, a small profit goes to the Trust.  This allows the Wanaka Primary School Future Trust to donate to the school.

 

 

 

We have setup the Munch Your Lunch programme by talking to caterers, teachers, the Board of Trustees and some parents.

Now we'd like your feedback.  We’ve created a survey for everyone, whether you’ve tried or not tried our lunches.

Your feedback will help us adjust Munch Your Lunch in Term 1 of next year.
