We aim at making school meals enjoyable and healthy for both our children and our planet.
SchoolFood4Change is an EU-funded project, headed by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and co-created by a consortium of 43 European partners, including environmental and non-governmental organisations, local governments, scientists and research institutes, schools, chefs, meal professionals and health experts. The well-being of both our young people and our planet is a responsibility we all share. Looking back, we are thankful for what has been done and achieved. Food, and school food in particular, is essential to grow, learn and thrive. School meals have always constituted a very welcome daily break for many pupils. That’s why we say: Thanks for the food!
Nevertheless, food always evolves over time and school food is no different. SchoolFood4Change builds on what has been achieved, asking for more vegetables, lentils, nuts, diversity on our plates and more democracy, education and inclusion in our societies. SchoolFood4Change therefore supports change agents who are spreading a new food culture from the plates in school canteens to the plates in families, workplaces and all of society. It’s time for a new menu!
