How sustainable and healthy are school meals in Europe? The European project SchoolFood4Change, in which we are a partner, decided to draw a clearer picture of current food systems in European schools with the aim of bringing sustainable and healthy diets back on school menus. The mapping study, conducted by the Stockholm Environment Institute Tallinn Center (SEI Tallinn) in Estonia, analyzes school food systems in 12 EU member states.
SF4C at World Food Forum: harnessing the potential of school meals to transform food systems for climate action
October 2023 offers two key moments for the global food agenda: World Food Day (16 October), and the World Food Forum – a youth-led movement and network to transform our agri-food systems (16-20 October, Rome, Italy). Tackling the critical interlinkages between food, water and climate, these two events are yet another opportunity for SchoolFood4Change to highlight the critical role of school meals in addressing the multi-faceted challenges of food systems transformation.
