Greece: Improving the Public School Canteens in Trikala, Volos, Kavala, and Ioannina is the first phase of a project to improve the conditions, design and content (i.e. food served) of the canteens in Greece, undertaken by Maria Seitopoulou of CO2 Green Office in Athens. The first phase of the project was completed by the GREENHOUSE team in Athens - Eleni Ziova and Nikos Vandoros - with the brief help of Melpomeni Vyzika.
