Golden Plate Award

Every year since 2007, Clayton Residential Halls Cafe has been participating in and successfully received the Golden Plate Award presented by Monash City Council. Eligibility for this annual award requires all food outlet participants to successfully achieve excellence in Healthy Food Options, Hygiene, Safe Food Handling and Environmental Sustainability.


At MRS, we support environmental initiatives that focus on Zero Waste practices, and waste-free dining. This includes eliminating the use of single-use plastic containers and disposable take-away coffee cups.

MRS Hall’s Cafe has partnered with RETURNR, a simple, sustainable solution to take-away dining.

How it works:

  1. Buy your meal at Hall’s cafe and pay a once-off $6 deposit for your RETURNR bowl
  2. Then, simply wash your bowl and return it to Hall’s Cafe when you purchase your next meal, which you will receive in a fresh RETURNR bowl
  3. Repeat this as many times as you like throughout the year
  4. Return your bowl at the end of contract period to get your $6 back, or keep your RETURNR bowl forever!
