The Ecological School Lunches of the Canarias Programme [Spain]

The Ecological School Lunches of the Canarias Programme started in 2013. It aims to dismantle the idea that fresh organic products are scarce and therefore expensive by enhancing the coordination among the different parties involved such as producers, consumers, logistics, cooks, educators and families.

The number of schools that joined the programme increased from 7 in 2013 to 51 today (7% of the total public and private schools).

Recommendations

There should be a greater uptake of similar measures at national level.
