For the very first time, World School Milk Day will be met with a counter-celebration.
World School Milk Day was launched in 2000 by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to «raise awareness of school milk programs» and to encourage schools and other institutions to do more to promote dairy.
World School Milk Day celebrations encourage people to think of milk as uniquely suited to fulfill children’s nutritional requirements, thus devaluing the many healthy calcium-rich foods that are eaten around the world and building a habit that is conducive to disease.
In contrast, ours will be a true celebration of health and abundance. It will be a fun full-day event with speakers covering topics such as school milk around the world, how to raise healthy children with plant-based foods, and more. We’ll have games, prizes, and of course… food!
We’ll share tasty dishes prepared with calcium-rich foods such as broccoli, kale, chia and tahini. We’ll also have fun with dairy alternatives, so that people can learn about all the ways they can enjoy familiar foods without the milk. Join us and sample some of the most popular vegan cheese alternatives on the market!
More details to come!
