Local food challenge has been launched in Lapland!

We challenge all the municipalities in Lapland to have one local food day in their six week menus. During the local food day at least some of the products served in local schools, kindergartens and elderly homes are local, such as potatoes, milk, fish, meat and berries. Our goal is that the local products of Lapland gain more visibility and interest also in the public food distribution.
