Baltimore Boosts Nutrition

October 7th, 2009

Baltimore Schools Go Meatless MondayWe’re pleased and honored that Baltimore City Public Schools have implemented the Meatless Monday program. We believe the program will offer their 80,000 students a powerful opportunity to learn about health and nutrition in an affirming, positive way.

Meatless Monday is essentially a campaign of choice and moderation – cut out meat one day a week. We feel everyone should be given the chance to make nutritiously sound decisions. Our program gives people the option to choose delicious meatless meals that can improve personal health as well as the health of the planet.

More, we’re delighted that schools, cities, organizations and groups have implemented Meatless Monday in ways that work best for them. They’ve adapted our campaign to fit their unique needs. In Baltimore, students have the chance to eat fresh, whole produce and can learn about plants and animals by visiting the system’s 33-acre teaching farm. Considering most of these students grow up in an urban setting, this is a rare, exciting opportunity for them. Other initiatives are underway at Northern Kentucky University and Harvard, to name just two. Each school has its own objectives, and is free to use the program as it sees fit.

Baltimore City Public SchoolsWe would again like to thank Baltimore City Public Schools for taking on this healthful program. If your school or organization would like to bring healthy, meatless options to your dining halls, we’re here to help. Contact us for more information, and together we can develop a program that will suit your needs!
