How low can you go? Assessing the options for lower carbon menus
With research showing that most emissions from school catering come from the foods that are served, this session examines practical ways to adjust menus and food sourcing to lower your carbon footprint.
Professor Angela Tregear, University of Edinburgh, will explain the options and talk through the updated LACA Carbon Calculator, designed to help caterers to move to lower carbon menus. She will be joined on video by Fiona Hammans of Abingdon Learning Trust, who will share some of the lessons learned by the Trust’s catering service, following its recent carbon footprint analysis.
