Future Food: Sustainable Food Systems for the 21st Century
Find out what sustainability means for food and explore the challenges of our journey towards a more sustainable food future.
I was able to develop a framework to guide sustainable school food in primary education in England.
I applied interdisciplinary lens, from the fields of public health, environmental sciences, and education, to study sustainable school food and co-design, implement and evaluate the first sustainable school meal research intervention enhanced by a food education content in three schools in England.
A guide on sustainable school food programs that are financially viable and nutritionally adequate, and environmentally sensitive is an outcome I feel proud about. I am grateful to the schools, the catering providers and the local and national organisations that made my work possible.
