Sacramento Adopts Meatless Monday to Welcome Paul McCartney

October 3rd, 2016

Sacramento loves Meatless Monday!

Known as “the City of the Trees,” Sacramento has a deep and abiding respect for nature. This was further evidenced last week when city officials declared the first day of the week to now be known as Meatless Monday, encouraging its residents to choose meat-free dishes on that day.

The announcement coincided with the grand opening of their new sports/concert venue, the Golden 1 Center, on Oct. 4th. Sir Paul McCartney will perform the inaugural concert. The world-famous musician is a “vocal” supporter of Meatless Mondays and founder of Meat-Free Mondays in the U.K.

A week-long “Farm to Fork” celebration preceded the city declaration. Twenty-two local restaurants now serve a Meatless Monday menu. There was also a sixth annual Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge where guests could dine on locally grown, plant-based cuisine from over 25 competing chefs and restaurants.
