School lunch

The European School Copenhagen is one of the City of Copenhagen’s “Madskoler” (culinary schools). This means that the school has its own production kitchen and staff, who prepare lunch for the students every day. Students from 4th-6th grade participate in the food preparation on a rotation basis and learn how to make healthy, varied and organic food.

The culinary schools in the City of Copenhagen place great emphasis on sustainability and animal welfare, and the food is 90-100% organic. Cooking and knowledge about food, nutrition and health is a central and integral part of daily life at the schools and also an integral part of the schools’ external profile. Each week there are meat, fish and vegetarian options on the menu, and the kitchen also caters to students with dietary restrictions.

To sign up for school lunch, you must create an account here. 

It is possible to apply for a subsidy towards the cost of the school lunch here.
