Turns out I didn't need it because there is a young man, Brendan, an employee with NHS, who is really fighting the use of Styrofoam and paper throw-away products. The group held their spaghetti dinner at a church and used the real dishes and the dishwasher.
One curious thing I have noticed about these dinners is that even though people use the real plates, they put the dessert on paper or Styrofoam plates. I am not sure why. They already have the dishwasher going so why do they do this?
