Napkin Dispensers on Dining Hall Tables
It's all too common to see stacks of napkins, both used and unused on tables and chairs in the dining halls. People grab more than they need ,just in case, so they do not have to go back into the serving line just to get another napkin from the bin. As a result, when napkins go unused, people discard them when they return their plates or justleave them lying around.
If there were a dispenser on each table, people could take fresh paper napkins only as necessary. This would reduce waste and decrease the amount of clutter left for the dining hall staff to clean up.
Dear We the Middkids Users,
Believe it or not, there used to be napkin dispensers at every table! So why did they leave? To reduce waste!
As you can see, we have a circular history here with napkin dispensers and their presence or lack thereof.
If you have a better idea for napkin dispensary methods, please contact one or all of the following:
