The Food Flagship programme aims to change the food culture in Croydon (UK case study)
posted by WM Admin on 26 January 2017
The Food Flagship programme, funded by the Mayor of London and the Department of Education, aims to change the food culture in the borough, starting with schools and families and, through businesses and workplaces, into the wider community.
Improving food in schools is one of the council’s main objectives. The council supports school breakfast clubs to offer healthier food options and more pupils are eating school meals. There are also new cooking classes to teach children about healthy eating.
Croydon has also created vibrant outdoor spaces to educate, engage and inspire children about growing fruit and vegetables.
