Light to eat more

The municipality of Lund has developed a lighting system for the canteens of their schools that aims to reduce food waste. The project consists of creating a favorable environment for the students of the centers to concentrate more on the food served and have a more calm and paceful meal. That is, so that they do not leave so much food on the plate. The project is accompanied by a redistribution of the dining room to optimize the change in the lighting system, which is also more efficient.

Those responsible for the schools in this Danish city regularly measure the amount of food thrown away. Since this pilot test has been started, these amounts have been reduced by 20%. The final results of the test will be taken next fall.
