Summary :

Maison d’Éducation à l’Alimentation Durable (MEAD – the Education and Sustainable Food Centre) is a municipal initiative incorporating sustainably produced food with respect for health and the environment in the Mouans-Sartoux area. The initial motivation for this project was the ‘mad cow’ crisis in 1998, which led the municipal council to serve only organic (bio) beef in school canteens.
