New York City schools, the largest public school system in the world, will launch Meatless Monday for all 1.1 million students beginning this fall. Students will have access to an all-vegetarian breakfast and lunch every Monday.

The citywide Meatless Monday program is an expansion of a pilot program that began with 15 schools in Brooklyn in 2018. Positive student feedback from the pilot encouraged city officials to make Meatless Monday an official program for all schools.

The Meatless Monday menu will include kid-friendly menu items such as veggie tacos, meatless chili and grilled cheese. Students will also have the opportunity to weigh-in on the menu before it’s finalized.
The program was announced by NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, plant-based advocate and Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams and School Chancellor Richard Carranza at a press conference attended by the Meatless Monday team.

Students and schools around the country are taking action to address climate change and health issues. Meatless Monday is a simple and effective program that helps students, parents and administrators develop long-term healthy eating habits that also address environmental issues. Click here to watch the video! Read More
