Meatless Monday is stressing people out!

On Monday, Lou Dobbs did a segment on how “Meatless Monday” is being adopted by the Baltimore city school district in an effort to cut costs and get children to eat healthier food.

In the report, Food and Nutrition Director for Baltimore Schools Tony Geraci says: “In every culture on the planet there are plant-based meals, and we wanted to be able to start a conversation around that.”

According to the report, parents of the school don’t have a problem with the new initiative and actually praise the idea. However, the American Meat Institute is totally pissed (shocking, I know). Spokeswoman Janet Reilly says the school district is depriving students and parents of “choice.”  Keep in mind this is the same organization that claims 75 percent of children are not getting enough protein. Riiiight. And the Marshmallow Man is real and climate change doesn’t exist.

At the end of the report Dobbs chimes in, calling this a “real political storm in the making.” And then seemingly accusing the district of having ulterior motives. Watch the video below and see what I’m talking about.
