The Los Angeles Unified School District is hopping on the Meatless Mondays bandwagon by officially eliminating meat every Monday from school cafeterias, the LATimes.com reports.

Last month, all schools within the L.A. Unified district stopped serving meat on Mondays, with only plant-friendly items available.

Yes, students can pack meat at home and bring their own lunches to school, but this is just another way to show students that it’s okay to not eat meat, that it’s okay to eat healthy and that this is another way to show respect to animals.

Reportedly, the entire school district serves 650,000 meals in each K-12 school. Just imagine how much the planet will benefit from cafeteria’s saying no to meat one day a week?

Meatless Mondays is just one more way to expand kids’ appetites and introduce them to delicious fruits and veggies.

Huge props to the second largest school district in the nation!
