74% of councils have declared a climate emergency, yet few are taking steps to reduce emissions embedded within our food system. We are demanding that:
- Councils go fully plant-based in their own catering at meetings and events
- Councils introduce two plant-based days per week in school menus that are council managed (the maximum allowed under current legislation), or they make a recommendation to schools which operate their own meal contracts
We’re encouraging councils to work with ProVeg, a leading food awareness organisation.
Our most recent win was in December 2021, when Oxfordshire County Council passed a motion committing to go plant-based and to recommend two plant-based days per week in schools. Thanks to our campaigners, several councils are now working closely with ProVeg and are currently rolling out new menus that include more plant-based options.
We have people running this campaign in over 40 local authority areas around the UK and we expect to see more wins in 2022!
