Since 2017, the city of Brussels has been working with an NGO, EVA, to bring more vegetarian offerings to public schools, kindergartens, and other institutions. The program is called “Good Food,” and they’re working with about a dozen institutions to train kitchen staff in developing recipes and cooking delicious plant-based food.
Next steps: To really solidify these results, Brussels could make this pilot project permanent, and expand Veggieday to one more day per week by 2020.

Greenpeace’s global challenge:
Our supporters are challenging cities to race to the top on meat reduction to protect our climate, forests, and water. We aim to have at least 50 cities commit to serving two vegetarian meals (no meat or dairy options) in all public canteens weekly by the end of 2019. We expect to have at least 100 global cities make this or a greater commitment toward less and better meat and more plant-rich meals by 2020.
