Children need to be educated about the effects of their everyday actions on the environment, because they are the ones who will be able to change the future. The organizers believe that while kids might be the key, their parents cannot be forgotten either as today they also lack understanding of the complex relationship between their everyday routine (including what they put on the table), and the destruction of our environment. The negative reaction to the reforms introduced in the school canteens has proven this. The action day aimed at drawing attention to the power every one of us has to ensure that our kids can eat healthy, sustainable food and breathe fresh air in the long term. With the cooperation of environmental organizations, caterers, NGOs and for-profit partners, the organizers showed sustainable alternatives on the 9th April, 2016. The project directly targeted families with small children who are affected by the canteen reform, but indirectly involved local restaurants, and individuals (20-50 years old) interested in environmental issues. The project educated the participants through fun activities, started conversation and enhanced the relationship between parents and the school canteens. As a result of the project awareness about the environmental effects of food and the appreciation towards the reform will increase. Let Me Eat It! will prove that cooperation between different sectors can be successful.
