1 Our committment and progress within the project Organic food in local schools

2 Guiding principles for school meals allowing families to balance the dinner in fair way Mediterranean diet: use products from agriculture and region, so large use of vegetables, fruit and legumes, wide use of complex carbohydrates such as pasta, bread, rice and cereals; First courses based on pasta are usually never combined with main courses of meat, on the contrary they are combined with soups; Fish is necessary every week; There are courses ( courses of long ago ) aimed at not losing our culinary tradition and, at the same time, at including it in modern life context, less wasteful from energetic point of view.

3 Quality indicators required in the call for tenders (valid until 2011) for the outsourcing of the catering service: Organic Every day at least one of these organic products is used: Rice, barley, spelt, flour, tomato puree, legumes, onion, celery, garlic, lemon, pumpkin, milk, yogurt, biscuits, marmelade, camomile tea, eggs, toasted brad- slices, crackers, fruit juice; Once a week: organic pasta Every day at least one of these organic (or coming from integrated pest control) products is used: apples, pears, kiwis, lettuce, carrots, in season- vegetables. D.O.P. (Protected designation origin) Only DOP products for Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, Parma ham. Meat In order to guarantee both quality anf traceability of the products, poultry, rabbit and beef come exclusively from national farms. GMO/OGM The use of GMO products is explicitely forbidden

4 The group identified 3 different targets for its actions: parents, pupils, other stakeholder. For the parents: meetings to explain the menus offered, in collaboration with the local sanitary services and expert nutritionists; definition of a representative responsible for the meals supplied (1 each school) and some meals committees ; meetings with the persons in charge of the meals preparation, open also to families and aimed at explaining the phases of these processes (with tastings);

5 For the students: to teach the importance of good nutrition and not to skip the meals; to stimulate active participation in the management of the refectory; to teach how to ask for a sufficient quantity of foodstuff to avoid waste; to teach the importance of recycling; to have a fruit snack at least once a week; to have snacks with fair trade products; to visits to local teaching, interactive and organic farms; promotion of the so- called educational agreement with the teaching staff, focused on the importance of a correct approach to the meal.

6 For the other stakeholders Debates with the local producers of organic products (used in the preparation of the meals for schools), in order to find an agreement to reduce the environmental impact, transport costs and energy consumption, and to have more fresh and top- quality products; Support to new forms of networking between the city centre and the rural surrounding area. The ultimate goal is to get to a sort of hand book that can be adopted by every Municipality

12 Memorandum of Understanding with CONAD Scandiano & Arceto THE ACTIONS THE PREMISES Consumers are increasingly informed about the necessity to adopt an healthy lifestyle and diet ; The awareness about the environmental consequences of food choices is also increasing ; The local context is composed of many small farming companies, that play also an important role in the protection and care of the land, but they have to face the problem of selling the goods they produce at a remunerative price ;

13 THE ACTIONS The companies and the associations share the common intent to strengthen and widen the range of products coming from these companies in the area of retail trade. The aim is to offer consumers the chance to buy in the supermarkets involved the local specialties in the best condition of freshness, taste and healthiness, obtained and distributed according to criteria of respect for health and environment and providing these companies with a commercial outlet as well as with a fair remuneration for their work. The Province of Reggio Emilia and the Municipality of Scandiano are commited to set up a working group (involving all stakeholders) that will identify those typical products suitable for the sale in the supermarkets and that will define criteria and conditions of choice, supply and promotion aimed at emphasizing the products high quality and the added value bound to the territory. [ ] Conad (the retailer) will promote these products by exhibiting a board with the logo Dai prati di casa (literally From home s meadows ), the name of the product, the name and the address of producer. After 1 year from the project s beginning an investigation about products performances, consumers satisfaction, price dynamics, etc. will be carried out.

14 In collaboration with the Province of Reggio Emilia It s a CQ (Controlled Quality) bread produced in Reggio Emilia Province by some bakeries accredited through a qualified certification: 50 hectares of wheat cultivated according to the rules of integrated production; quintals of bread produced by 37 bakeries;

15 no fats from animal origin and no additives, just olive oil, a bit of iodine salt (less than 1,5%) and natural rising process; very short supply chain, so cost reduction, and full traceability; more tasty and respectful of the environment and of the consumers health. Pan De Re was promoted during the Bread Festival, held in Reggio Emilia from Sept. 2nd to the 8th Thank to the collaboration with CIR Food, starting from Sept. 19th 2011, this bread is served to the children attending pre- schools and primary schools in Reggio Emilia.
