Brussels, Belgium - Less Meat More Life - Greenpeace - Less Meat More Life - Greenpeace

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 20 cities commit to serving two vegetarian meals (no meat or dairy options) in all public canteens weekly by the end of 2018. We expect to have at least 100 global cities make this or a greater commitment toward less and better meat and more plant based meals by 2020.

Are you ready to pressure cities, schools, universities and other public institutions to get serious about meat reduction? Sign up below to get a toolkit that will give you step-by-step instructions on how to get started in your local community.

If you sign up for the toolkit now, you’ll also get free veggie tips and recipes. And, if your city or institution is already embracing more plant-based meals, we’ll give you access to our nomination form so we can add them to our world map of leading cities.
