A European School Network
Slow Food's vision of daily food, promotes meals which combine pleasure with nutrition and take care of the planet.
So the next phase is starting .... the local meetings from November 2010 til April 2011, we will put into practice the lessons which have been learned from the project - maximise on the network and apply it to our local area. The objective of the local meeting is to invite those who can make decisions in our schools to come together and pledge to make a change, a stance for quality food, a decision to have a school garden, farm visits, start working with producers to source local foods, to have traditional dishes in the canteen, to promote traditional fare in the canteen.
This is a very exciting step and we would like to hear your thoughts, including advice ..if you have already had your meeting
