GO Box
Last month, the Portland Timbers launched a new sustainability/food initiative called GO Box. GO Box is a Portland-based company that reduces waste created by “traditional” to-go containers by providing reusable alternatives for food carts and their customers. Visit the KeyBank Club Deck during home matches and become a GO Box member by paying a one-time fee of $8.50 and collecting a GO Box token. Order a meal from one of the participating carts on the KeyBank Club Deck, turn in the token and enjoy your meal in a reusable container. When finished, simply return the GO Box at the drop site on the KeyBank Club Deck and receive a token to present the next time, whether at JELD-WEN Field or a participating food cart around the city for another meal in a clean, sanitized GO Box.
