Free event

Imagine how much we could gain in health and how much health we can return to the planet with one simple action: not eating meat one day a week. In the US, to promote this idea, there is the Meatless Monday campaign. 

The industrial production and consumption of meat are unsustainable for the climate, for our health, and for the millions of animals whose well-being is sacrificed in order to keep costs low for the consumer. It should not be this way. Despite the evident complexity of a challenge like this to change the food system, it’s possible to take the first step, putting attention on the quality of the meat we get every week and reducing the overall quantity. Meatless Monday makes this strategy possible, helping us to find a near-forgotten heritage of traditional recipes, for example, ones that use legumes, thereby redirecting us to healthier alternatives.
