Municipal food strategies

What is the Case Study about? 

A growing number of European municipalities have developed food strategies, which aim at assuring access to healthy and climate-friendly food for all social groups, e.g. through innovative strategies for food provision in schools, kindergartens and public canteens. The case study explores the acceptance of school meals in integrative secondary schools in Berlin as well as related health and social cohesion implications.
