Reusable To-Go Program

The R2Go Program is finally back! The UVA 2020-2030 Sustainability Plan aims to reduce materials sent to the landfill by 30% of 2010 levels. Help us meet this goal by choosing to use a reusable container when eating your dining hall meals on the go! The program has been changed from previous semesters, so be sure to read how the new program works.

Reusable. Reliable. Ready To Go! 

UVA Dining offers free reusable to-go boxes in all 3 of the residential dining halls. Using a reusable container is a convenient way to take food on the go while minimizing waste.


How to use:

  • All students with a meal plan will receive one Reusable To-Go swipe to be used to redeem a container.

  • Before you swipe, tell the cashier that you would like to redeem your reusable to-go container, and they will use your designated swipe to provide you with a container

  • Fill up you container in the dining hall and take your food to go. Bring the dirty container next time you come to the dining room to exchange it for a new one.

  • Tell the cashier you are returning your dirty box and drop it in the return bin to exchange for a clean box.

  • Always sanitize your hands after you drop off a dirty container and the cashier will hand you a clean container.

**Note: Once you redeem your first container, you must always swap a dirty container for a clean container**
