Starting this September, 1,800 New York City schools will officially give up meat one day a week, based on the premise that eating less meat reduces the environmental impact on the planet, and offers a more nutritious meal. Cherry Dumaual, spokesperson for Meatless Monday, the nonprofit initiative of The Monday Campaigns whose goal is to reduce meat consumption by 15 percent, says, "Through Meatless Monday, students will become more aware of the role plant-based foods play in their health and the environment. This learning could have a positive effect on their health and wellbeing throughout their lives, as well as their understanding of the role of food choices on the environment." MeatlessMondays.com offers a variety of resources, including a book that features 30 tasty, bulk-scale, child-friendly meatless recipes that meet the requirements of the National School Lunch Program.
