Paws Up!
To the Los Angeles Unified School District for instituting Meatless Mondays in school cafeterias.

According to a news story, the Los Angeles Unified School District has instituted Meatless Mondays in all school cafeterias. What a great way to introduce students, and faculty, to the delights of vegetarian eating. Students can bring from home any food they want; but on Mondays, the cafeteria food service will be meat-free.

“Los Angeles has the second-largest public school district in the country. It should be a model for enterprising school menus, and going meatless is a smart move.”

Take Action: Los Angeles residents, let your superintendent know you applaud the decision to make Mondays meatless in school cafeterias. For the rest of our readers, contact your school district leaders and urge them to follow Los Angeles’s lead.
