The newest thing in education circles is the elimination of the cafeteria tray. Apparently it saves on energy (cutting down on the hot water needed for washing) and prevents so a lot of food waste. Students who juggle plates don’t let their eyes become bigger than their stomachs, I guess Well, some students:

“I’ll just keep coming back for seconds,” said Jeff Lyke, a freshman at Glenville State, which started going trayless in April to coincide with Earth Day.

At least he’s getting more exercise. I’m with Jeff. At buffets with no trays, I don’t eat less. I just get annoyed at having to make more trips. Why do I have such strong memories of the high school lunch tray, spotted with spilled milk and sloppy joe droppings? Repetition, probably.
