Why Support Meatless Monday?
Meatless Monday is an international movement to help people reduce their meat consumption by 15% to improve personal health and the health of the planet. There would be no shortage of wonderful vegetarian options for school lunches and other meals. A small selection includes: baked beans, garden burgers, grilled veggie fajitas, vegetarian chili, falafel in a pita, pasta (primavera, ravioli, lasagna, or other pastas with veggies), bean & vegetable burritos, grilled vegetable panini, vegetable wraps, eggplant subs with low-fat mozzarella, tofu & vegetable stir-fry, vegetable fried rice, and vegetarian tacos. These options would also be significantly cheaper to get than the meat provided in school lunches so it benefits both student's health and school budget.
