The EU-funded project SchoolFood4Change (SF4C) engages 3,000 schools as catalysts for food system transformation, impacting 600,000 young people through 16 cities and regional governments across 12 European countries and radiating into society at large.
SchoolFood4Change is coordinated by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and brings all relevant school food actors to one table: from students, parents, and teachers, farmers, chefs, and canteen staff to experts from sustainable food procurement, dietitians, and local enterprises. The project started in January 2022 and will run for four years.
As a global network, Délice will support the partner member cities of Lyon & Malmö in implementing their activities, bringing best practices from the schools of Délice member cities outside Europe and sharing their successes globally.
“Educating the children of today will build the food lovers of tomorrow. We strongly believe in the power of food: educating the new generation to taste, be aware of the importance of their diet on their health and the planet, and always happy to share a nice meal!”
Olivier Marette, President of Délice Network
