South San Francisco Schools Join Meatless Mondays

The South San Francisco Unified District has just joined the Meatless Monday movement and will not be serving any of its kids meat once a week.

“The school district recently joined the international Meatless Monday movement and is participating by offering exclusively meat-free meals in its elementary and middle school cafeterias every Monday, and by educating students about the health benefits of eating more plant-based foods,” stated a press release by the Humane Society of the United States praising the district’s decision.

Some of the foods that will be replacing meat menu items on Mondays are “bean burritos, taco triangles with sides of apples and fresh baby carrots.”

“Americans eat too much meat, and we pay a heavy price for it,” said Kristie Middleton, food policy manager of HSUS in a statement. “Providing more plant-based meals to kids can improve their health and raise their consciousness about how their food choices connect to the world around them.”

The surprisingly delayed measure from the green and eco-conscious city comes after the San Diego and Los Angeles school districts have already adopted the Meatless Monday menus in previous years.

We say better late than never, though!
