During the next school year, there will be a free, meat-free school meal for all students at upper secondary schools in Oslo, the City Council has decided.
Eventually, junior high schools will also receive the same offer, the City Council told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
The schools will receive a sum of money from the Municipality that will cover the expense of the meals, and the schools can choose whether they want to spend the money on breakfast, lunch, or both.
The City Council promised free school meals already in 2019. The food will cost Oslo Municipality NOK 96 million a year.
