Disaster prevention/mitigation program learned from food

[Corporate Initiatives] Local products are used to create school meals for local consumption in daycares and kindergartens up and down the country because to eat is to live. On-site food education classes are delivered to pre-school children to teach the next generation about sustainability in food in practice. Also, as an operator of many company canteens, we strictly adhere to a policy of not interrupting the activities of our client companies. As a result we’ve established disaster stockpiles which have allowed us to never miss a meal. (During the Great Tohoku Earthquake, Kumamoto Earthquake etc.) [Program Takeaways] This program features a presentation from sustainability professionals involved in food business in Osaka with a focus on public health, educating through food, disaster prevention, disaster prep, etc. (includes a tasting of a disaster recipe).
