NYC Schools Go Meatless on Mondays

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio announced the launch of a Meatless Mondays pilot program in 15 Brooklyn schools, campaigned by students themselves. Under this program, participating schools will serve an exclusively vegetarian breakfast and lunch every Monday.

This means that over 300,000 more vegetarian meals will served per year in schools. “We understand that there is a climate crisis and an obesity crisis,” says Mayor de Blasio. “Both of these crises can be meaningfully addressed by adopting more of a plant-based diet.” 

Vegan options at schools have been on the rise for years, and over 50 school districts currently observe Meatless Monday.
