March 15th, 2010

PS 361: The Children's Workshop School, New YorkOne person who believes parents should make informed decisions about what their kids eat is Elizabeth Puccini. She’s the concerned parent who convinced The Children’s Workshop School to go Meatless Monday – the first school in New York City to do so. Read our interview with Elizabeth where she explains the simple steps she took to bring the movement to her school!

If you’re concerned about the quality of food in your community’s school cafeterias, why not talk to your School Foods Manager and request Meatless Monday? Or start a Meatless Monday club in your community, or ask your office cafeteria food manager to offer meatless options every Monday! Together, we can help fight childhood obesity and boost personal health one Monday at a time!
