Insights from the General Assembly

SchoolFood4Change General Assembly in Vienna!

In an era where what we eat significantly impacts our health and the environment, the SchoolFood4Change (SF4C) project is a beacon of hope and innovation. The SF4C project is a platform for robust discussions on transforming school meals into healthier, more environmentally friendly options. 


Délice actively participated in the General Assembly of the project from October 23rd to 26th, 2024. This annual event, hosted by the City of Vienna, Austria, convened all the partners of the SF4C project, along with its member cities Lyon and Malmö, who are also partners of the Project, came together to review the project's progress, assess its impact, and chart the next steps after nearly two years of engagement.

The scope of discussions at the General Assembly included various topics such as vegan school catering, innovative and sustainable menu development, and training for school chefs. Beyond food, the event explored themes like youth engagement and gender equality in school canteens.

As part of the event, attendees visited several venues showcasing innovative approaches and solutions in the pursuit of sustainability. These included the City Farm, the first and largest 'children's garden' in the middle of Vienna, the GAFA School, a renowned institution for patisserie, hospitality, and tourism, and the Luftburg, the largest Bio restaurant in Europe, providing practical insights into the project's real-world applications.

The SchoolFood4Change project exemplifies the strength of collaboration and shared goals in driving meaningful change. This General Assembly was also the opportunity to welcome the newly involved replication cities of the project, including Delice members, Izmir, and Wroclaw

Délice Network remains committed to furthering the potential for positive change in school meals, recognizing its profound impact on the well-being of children and the future of our planet. We look forward to contributing to a healthier and more sustainable world, one meal at a time.
