Gilles Pérole, the deputy mayor of this small French town, is a tireless advocate for sustainable food. With his leadership, the French town has been serving 100% organic meals in its primary schools since 2012. And the schools have been offering meals based on vegetable proteins once a week since 2017. Not only that, but all of the meals are home-made, and 85% of the vegetables come from the municipal vegetable garden!

Parents and students overwhelmingly approve of these changes, with a 99% of parents saying they are satisfied and 97.5% of children. The students eat such creative meals as lentil lasagna and Thai rice salad, widening their culinary horizons as well!

What’s next?

With these moves so popular, the obvious next step is to institute one more “vegetable protein” day per week by 2020.
