About Meatless Monday
Meatless Monday is a global movement with a simple message: one day a week, cut the meat. Launched in 2003, Meatless Monday is a non-profit initiative of The Monday Campaigns, working in collaboration with the Center for a Livable Future (CLF) at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Our goal is to reduce meat consumption by 15% for our personal health and the health of the planet.
Meatless Monday provides information, news, recipes and free promotional materials to help individuals, restaurants, hospitals, schools, food companies and entire communities to start each week with a commitment to eating healthy, environmentally friendly, meat-free meals.
