Involving companies that manage cafeterias

Cafeterias are not just for feed, but for education

Please check out this local experience in my town, jointly developed by three companies.

"Healthy cafeterias. A commitment for quality in school cafeterias"

This initiative extends beyond lunchtime and provides resources for families to purchase healthy habits also at home. You can also find artistic contests, outdoor activities or a FAQ section for parents.

It also aims to encourage better relationships between students and their teachers, and is a bet for local sustainable agriculture.

Great inspiration on healthy cafeterias Jose! I noticed that the site is in Spanish. Can you share with us which community this initiative is based in? This will be very relevant to our focus on Hispanic communities in this challenge.

Thanks!!! It´s based in Pamplona (http://www.pamplona.es/verPagina.asp?idPag=1&idioma=5), in norther Spain. Maybe social, demographic and economic conditions are different in Spain than in the Hispanic community of America, but I´m sure that it could be a good initiative to export.
