A campaign for more plant-based food in UK schools

74% of councils have declared a climate emergency, yet few are taking steps to reduce emissions embedded within our food system.  

We’re encouraging councils to: 

  • take tangible steps towards meeting climate targets
  • help young people establish healthier eating patterns 
  • save money 

… by serving less meat & more plant-based meals.  

We’re encouraging councils to work with ProVeg, a leading food awareness organisation.  ProVeg offer menu consultations, chef and caterer training, PR support, impact assessment and more to caterers and councils keen to introduce more plant-based options into school menus.  

How is it going so far?

We have people running this campaign in over 40 local authority areas around the UK and we’ve had several successes already.  Hackney Council have agreed to implement one vegetarian day per week across 130 schools, along with Brighton Council, and Somerset County Council is now working closely with ProVeg to explore ways to promote plant-based meals in schools.  

So how can you make a difference?
