    Food for thought

    Food is fundamental to the health of ourselves and our communities. The project Food for thought allowed students and staff to explore cultural, social, historical, economic, environmental and aesthetic issues about food. The project work included contrastive studies of school lunches, traditional recipes, food baskets and historic interviews. As many as 12 exchange projects were carried out, of which the two highlights were the major workshops in Wargegem in 2011 and in Vasa in 2012, gathering students from all the partner schools. One of the most popular activities was the cooking session in families, when students were collaborating in preparing, cooking and enjoying food. By focusing on positive aspects the focus was on 'positive handprints' rather than 'ecological footprints'. This was indeed 'Food for thought'.
