collective catering

"Eat good, healthy, local food in the canteens of my regionterritory."
Fiche n°02 issue du recueil « Demain mon territoire », copublié par l’ADEME et les EcoMaires à destination des élus locaux pour les aider à intégrer la dimension environnementale dans leur programme au travers de vingt fiches thématiques donnant des pistes d’action et des exemples de solutions mises en œuvre.

La façon dont nous mangeons affecte à la fois notre santé mais aussi le changement climatique. A l’échelle d’une alimentation collective ces conséquences deviennent un enjeu majeur pour les communes. Et c’est pourquoi les villes d’Ile-de-France ont mis en œuvre un Projet alimentaire territorial (PAT) ciblant...
Card no. 02 from the guide “Demain mon territoire” (Tomorrow my Region), co-published by ADEME and the EcoMaires, is intended for elected officials to help them integrate the environment into their programme thanks to twenty information sheets providing ideas for action and examples of implemented solutions.
 
The way we eat affects both our health and climate change. On a collective food scale, these consequences become a major issue for the municipalities.                                                 
That is why the cities from Ile de France have implemented a regional food project (RFP) targeting school restaurants to reduce food waste.
 
The strategy implemented to achieve this is built around three main lines of action: adaptation of the quantity of each menu to children’s hunger, better food waste management thanks to the practice of selective sorting by children and the recovery or organic waste, and finally, awareness and educational work with children and catering staff. Such a project which involves both young and old has already reduced the amount of food thrown away per meal tray by more than 28%.                                       
                                                                     
Through intergenerational mobilisation supervised by municipalities, it is thus possible to promote a sustainable approach to food.

With the support of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, France Urbaine, in partnership with RESOLIS, decided to carry out a study entitled "Cities facing the challenges of food insecurity". This document gathers 21 contributions from metropolises, large cities and agglomerations, which make it possible to identify, through concrete initiatives, how they act against food insecurity.
 
The factsheet “A territory that embraces a sustainable, responsible and mutually supportive food supply” presents the food strategy implemented on the territory of Tours Metropolis.
Since the Renaissance, the city of Tours, capital of the Touraine region, has been considered to be a land of human-ism offering a good quality of life. Known as “the garden of France”, in recent years, it has been focusing its efforts on defending and promoting culinary crops in all their forms.
This takes the form of financial support for associations involved in the fight against food insecurity (€220,000 of subsidies per year).
 
Part of the grant paid to the CCAS enables the latter to help families to obtain better food through work-shops and optional social assistance, accompanied by two significant measures: food aid through support cheques (nearly €200,000 annually) and aid with school meals for the most disadvantaged families that gives children access to lunch at a reduced cost (€0.64). In 2018, this assistance benefited 1,774 children (cost: nearly €500,000).

The factsheet “For a responsible, solidarity approach to school meals ”outlines the actions implemented by the urban council of Amiens Metropolis, in response to the priorities set out in the National Food Policy.
At the heart of a rich agricultural region, Amiens has expanded on both sides of the wide Somme valley and around the confluences with the Avre and the Selle rivers It presents an attractive living environment characterized by an abundance of green spaces and gardens. Presenting itself as a city that cares about the environment, Amiens has made the link between the city and nature one of the levers of its territorial development project.
 
In the context of priority actions for the 2014/2019 period, several objectives were set:
  • Encourage short supply chains participating in the development of the local organic and conventional agriculture sector and, through this measure, the relaunching of food markets to support local producers.
  •  Integrate specific criteria such as the time between picking and reception of the product.
  •  Offer educational tours of food production sites in such a way as to maintain a local supply offer for public contracts.
  •  Give preference to food that is a produced by organic agriculture or which carries other quality certification (Red Label for example).
  •  Combat food waste.
