On Monday, October 1st, eaters around the globe will band together and enjoy a World Meatless Lunchfor personal and planetary health. The event is a project of neuroscientist Dr. Custer C. Deocaris, the founder of The Philippines’ Luntiang Lunes campaign. Dr. Deocaris hopes that his simple request to enjoy a meatless lunch will resonate around the world and spread awareness of the global Meatless Monday movement.
Luntiang Lunes has already made great strides in bringing Meatless Monday to the Philippines: the campaign is present at schools and worksites across the country and was recently backed by the Health Department and Mayor of Quezon City, the country’s most populous area.
Celebrate with The Philippines and the rest of the world today! Take a picture of your meatless midday meal and post it to the World Meatless Lunch Facebook page. Be sure to tell them what country you’re in and why going meatless on Monday is important to you!
