will receive a small keychain that will signify your participation in
the program. When you want to-go, give the keychain
cashier at Summerfields and the cook will put your food in a reusable
container. When you're done, bring the container back to
Summerfields without food and the cashier will give you another
keychain. Don't worry about washing your container, it will
put through the dishwashers in the kitchen. The cost of the
program will be 5 points and this one time purchase is good for the remainder of your Wesleyan career!
