WHY MEATLESS MONDAY?
Why celebrate Meatless Monday? Meatless Monday is not a new idea – in fact, it dates back to World War I when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration urged American families to reduce consumption of key staples to aid in the war effort. More than 13 million families pledged to observe the national meatless conservation days.
The campaign returned during World War II when President Franklin D. Roosevelt relaunched the effort to help with the war’s efforts on the home front. President Harry S. Truman continued the campaign to help feed war-ravaged Europe.
With the average American consuming as much as 75 pounds more meat each year than in generations past, Meatless Monday has been reintroduced as a public health awareness campaign to address the prevalence of preventable illness associated with excessive meat consumption. By reducing meat consumption for just one day per week, you will be doing something good for your personal health and for the planet!
