Ma Cantine Autrement, sustainable food in school canteens

Montpellier, France

Support to innovations in school canteens in Montpellier Metropole

The City of Montpellier launched a vast and ambitious project in 2016 to streamline its school catering system by promoting and developing sustainable food for children eating lunch in the city’s school canteens. This Ma Cantine Autrement (MCA) project is designed as an interactive system around four primary pillars: a purchasing policy, production management, meal distribution in school restaurants and sustainable development awareness.
