INNOCAT City Interest Group delves into sustainable school catering
School catering is a hot topic in cities across Europe. It is responsible for a large percentage of public expenditure and is close to the heart of most citizens, as it affects the diet of their children. Catering is not just important for environmental and health reasons, but can also have a direct social impact through the creation of jobs and the promotion of small and medium sized enterprises.
The City Interest Group on sustainable school catering has been set up to enable cities to share their experiences on the topic and work towards achieving their sustainability goals. The group, which has been set up as part of the INNOCAT project, brings together the cities of Copenhagen, Malmö, Helsinki and Ghent and INNOCAT partner Turin. In a series of webinars and face to face meetings, these cities discuss their achievements, goals and the challenges they face as they strive to procure sustainable catering services.
