Wasteless lunch for kids

I received the following request from a local park district.   I know some 
industries and organizations have experience with wasteless lunches.  Any 
info can be sent to me or directly to Judy Miller.

Subject: wasteless lunch help
Organization: Urbana Park District

I am making a stab in the dark trying to find some information and help for
an activity we want to include as part of part of our earth day event this
year. We want to encourage people to bring "wasteless" picnics to our Big
Grove Storytelling Festival on April 22, 2001. I am looking for
information about "wasteless" lunches, how to evaluate or grade lunches as
far as how much waste they produce and information about how much such
items as Lunchables cost the environment. Any ideas on where I can get
such information?

Thanks for the input - it is greatly appreciated.
