TITLE: Food Security in our school
The region in which we live is the first agricultural region in France. We eat in the canteen everyday and we wonder if the food is coming from nearby productions. As a result, we wonder if it is possible to determine the origin, quality and ecological footprint of the food in the canteen. To do this, we started by studying the composition of food, that is to say finding product labels as well as information on traceability. We then discussed with the canteen managers about short tours to organize a meal based on a few organic and local products. As a result, we investigated people’s conciousness of the quality of their food. In addition, to carry out our project, we must explore the possibility of using more local products in our school catering service. In addition, to complete our project, we need to research the possibility to using more local products in our school catering.
