Lunch Box

The aim of the Lunch Box is to link food and the acquisition of the host country’s language, and to enrich children’s taste education with an anthropologically based approach. LABA coordinates this segment, while Territoires Alimentaire involves the researcher Yassir Yebba, who together with the Buisson School implements the work: mobilization of children and families, organization of workshops, meals, snacks, writing of the pedagogical project, pedagogical feedback, evaluation and mobilization of the children (testimonies and stories), construction of the pedagogical guide.


The objective of the Lunch Box is to understand the links and relationships between territory and food by working on the landscape.


Returning to the primary function of the plate, that of proclaiming hunger, feeding and appeasing.

Food is essential to progress. Food and migration are interconnected, and when we eat well, we live better together. Food is the ultimate social link. All behaviour flows from it. There is nothing more unique than eating. So the way we eat is very important.


Workshop #1

The first workshop took place in February 2021, aimed at the discovery of taste.

Workshop #2

The second workshop allows the discovery of oneself, one's own tastes, one's sensibility and the sensibility of others.

Workshop #3

The third workshop allows the acquisition of vocabulary related to taste, food and the cultural dimension of taste.

Workshop #4

The last objective is more anthropological and will seek to feed and conduct a survey on the eating habits of children.

Exchange Sessions

Exchange sessions called “from me to the other” will be proposed around taste, sensoriality and the culture of children.

First Phase

Surveys & Questionnaires

Through questionnaires and surveys on the food practices of children in their families, the Lunch Box reveals the practices and customs of each person.

Second Phase

Imagination, Food Supply & Cooking Practice

The second phase focuses and addresses the notions of food processing through practice, and children’s understanding of the ways in which food is cut up and cooked.

Third Phase


The third exchange focuses on “understanding”: dealing with constraint and rules.
