This chapter identifies school meal programs in Brazil and Canada as sustainable alternatives to some of the harms caused by the dominance large corporations exert on the global food system. It analyses the new version of the Brazilian National School Meal Program (PNAE) and British Columbia’s Farm to School initiative (F2S BC) in Canada. On one hand, PNAE creates an institutional market for family farmers, while offering students a greater amount of locally produced fresh and healthy food. On the other, F2S BC takes form through activities such as school gardens, food education and incentives to purchase locally produced food. This work finds that PNAE has more reach but limits school meals to consumption, whereas F2S BC emphasizes the role of schools as spaces for growing and recognises food as a pedagogical resource.
