Meatless Monday: A Win-Win Proposition

Meatless Monday was started by the U.S. government as a resource-saving measure during World Wars I and II. In 2003, it was revived by The Monday Campaigns in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to reduce meat consumption by 15 percent for our personal and planetary health. Implementing Meatless Monday at your school can help meet the demand for healthier meals, demonstrate the school’s commitment to sustainability, and spare animals from factory farms.
