School Meals and Inclusivity: A Question of Price?

On 17th November, 2022, WFTO-Europe and the FTAO co-organised a webinar looking into the issues of inclusivity in school meals and covering best practice from cities, civil society and private actors in different countries.

School meals are an important part of children’s daily life with big significance for their health, their education as well as their social life. School meals also make up a big public procurement item and in recent years there has been a greater focus on how it can contribute better to achieve sustainability standards.

Virginia Pignata, graduate of political science and activist on sustainable and inclusive food systems, moderated the plenary together with Professor at Law, Tomaso Ferrando, at Institute of Development Policy (IOB) at University of Antwerp. Speakers included Claudia Paltrinieri, Food Insider (Italy), Jatta Makkula, national coordinator of the Fair Trade Towns network in Finland, Lisa Hermann, head of campaigning & engagement at Fairtrade Deutschland (Germany), Estelle Compere-Leroy, project manager of Manger Demain (Wallonie, Belgium), and Astrid Dahl from Municipality of Copenhagen (Denmark).
