The biggest number of workshops in a day took place in India as schoolchildren earned their superpower status.
Food Heroes is a global initiative supported by Electrolux Food Foundation along with partners to teach the future generation how better eating makes for a healthier planet.
In the city of Hyderabad, 85 classrooms across five schools opened their doors and 400 workshop facilitators flooded through. Trained one day prior, the volunteers were delegates at the annual AIESEC International conference.
AIESEC, along with Worldchefs make up the partnership trio that together with the Electrolux Food Foundation is bringing Food Heroes to fruition around the world.
Young leaders, chefs and employees from these organizations have taken the program to heart and their global networks are invaluable in spreading the message and taking workshops to offices, schools and kitchens.
The free-to-use toolkit was developed through the UNICEF sustainability initiative World’s Largest Lesson and is available in a multitude of languages.
Aimed at kids aged 8–12, the lesson plan inspires children to challenge and change their own food habits in a fun and playful way.
