Meatless Monday: Improving the World One Meal at a Time

Commitment by

The Humane Society Of The United States

In 2013, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) committed to work with three dozen schools (colleges, universities, K-12 schools, or school districts), healthcare facilities, city councils, and/or health departments to scale its 'Meatless Monday' program. Reducing meat consumption will have an impact on both environmental sustainability, through the reduction of water and land use, and human health. A growing body of research indicates that reducing meat consumption reduces risk for non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, cancer, respiratory disease, and strokes. The HSUS will provide recipes, marketing, public relations materials, and strategic guidance to its partner schools during the implementation of Meatless Monday, with the goal of reaching 500,000 students in one year.
