In light of concerns about the planet and America's health, the Meatless Monday initiative continues to spread and is now making its way into public services like schools and hospitals.
Meatless Mondays are a small personal change that make a huge difference. Baltimore Public Schools launched Meatless Mondays and anticipate buying 120,000 fewer pounds of meat for the school year.
Eliminating meat from Monday lunch menus is a smart move for kids' health and the environment. Reducing meat can decrease intake of saturated fat and increase eating healthy fruits and vegetables. And numerous reports indicate that reducing meat consumption is integral to reducing environmental problems like water pollution and climate change.
Let's maximize the potential of Meatless Mondays and bring this revolutionary idea to all of America's public schools. Tell Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack of the USDA, which oversees the National School Lunch Program, to make Meatless Mondays mandatory in public schools.
