Project Allgäu Organic Lunch box – organic-regional-fair
Healthy free breakfast for 2000 Allgäu abcedarians
Under the patronage of Kempten’s mayor about 2000 abcedarians of Allgäu primary schools received the Allgäu Organic Lunch Box filled with delicious organic products.
More and more children are coming to school without breakfast. These children are noticeably lacking in concentration and achievement.
The Lunch box project is performed by Bio-Ring Allgäu and several local organizations.
The contents of the boxes are donated by Allgäu organic greengrocers, bakeries, fair-trade shops and organic manufacturers. The project is also supported by All Organic Treasures GmbH and other organic enterprises of the region.
Purpose of the Allgäu Organic Lunch Box:
The reusable box shall contribute to reduce waste and to show an example of a healthy school breakfast. It contains a carrot, an apple, wholegrain bread, müsli, a teabag, spread and a fair-trade sweet. All the food is organic. A flyer of the project provides information and ideas for parents and teachers how to continue filling the lunch box with healthy food so children can enjoy wholesome nutrition and develop an ecological awareness.
