Think&EatGreen@School Project


The Think&EatGreen@School Project is a Community-University Research Alliance promoting change in what public school students eat, learn and do at school in relation to food, health and the environment. The project aims to engage students with the sources of their food through growing, preparing, sharing and managing food waste at school. Think&EatGreen@School aims to foster food citizenship by providing the entire community of learners—from students to professors, teachers to chefs, farmers, gardeners, restaurateurs, and nutrition and health professionals— with opportunities to participate in the development of healthy and sustainable school food systems.
