“EcoComedores de la Biosfera”: a tool for social change, encouraging the consumption of organic seasonal products and proximity in schools.

This project seeks to analyze the current situation and establish improvement actions, both for production and logistics, as well as for schools, seeking to establish more roots or a project already started.

They participate in the project “GAL Mariñas-Betanzos” and the School “A Caracola”, as well as 11 schools and the ALEGA Association.

In 2015, the Marinas-Betanzos Association designed a Food Plan with the support of the Biodiversity Foundation, to promote the creation of “green jobs” with new organic producers, who had been able to market in short circuits. A pilot experience of local ecological consumption was carried out, which grew to the current 12 schools, with more than 2,000 schoolchildren arriving.

At the beginning of 2020, as a result of the reflection of various agents (GAL, A Caracola, Menjadors, ALEGA) on the situation of the project and its needs, demands and challenges, the idea arose to promote the project with the help of the Carasso Foundation.

The Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation was created in 2010, in honor of Daniel Carasso, founder of Danone, and his Mrs. Nina. His work is a pioneer in the concept of Sustainable Food with the aim of universal access to healthy and respectful food with people and ecosystems.

The “Eco-Dining Rooms of the Biosphere” Project is part of the 2020 Call for Projects of the Sustainable Food Program of the Carasso Foundation, which will co-finance the development of the actions.

The “Eco-Dining Rooms of the Biosphere” Project is part of the 2020 Call for Projects of the Sustainable Food Program of the Carasso Foundation, which will co-finance the development of the actions.

Food was viewed as a climate change mitigation tool that contributes to rural development, the conservation of biodiversity and the landscape, and a change in the consumption model.

 

During the years 2021 and 2023 it is intended to carry out an evaluation of the current situation where organic seasonal product is already being consumed in 12 schools, served by ALEGA, in addition to raising awareness and training in the design and preparation of school menus, and their adaptation to seasonal productions in the area, increasing the consumption of fruit and vegetable protein and facilitating their design through support manuals.

Finally, it will seek to strengthen the project’s links with the school community, so that they fully understand the initiative and the importance of their active involvement. In addition, the possibility of incorporating more schools in “A Coruña” and other municipalities of the Biosphere Reserve will be analyzed, and involving the local and regional administration in this process of change.
