Barcelona agrees to reduce meat consumption in school canteens

The City Council of Barcelona announced in January 2020 that school canteens will begin serving plant-based food to students for two days each week, as well as offer more seasonal and organic products.  It is an initiative that arises in the city’s emergency climate declaration.

“In the face of the climate emergency, in which we are immersed, we need courageous and forceful measures and the Barcelona City Council has become, with its decision, a great example to follow when implementing measures that will allow the implementation of a healthy and sustainable diet in school canteens,” said Luis Ferreirim, responsible for agriculture at Greenpeace Spain. 

With the announcement, Barcelona becomes the first city in the Spanish state to officially adopt measures to reduce the supply of meat to reduce its carbon and ecological footprint.
