Beginning this spring,15 Brooklyn schools will serve an exclusively vegetarian breakfast and lunch every Monday to 7,500 students. Currently over 50 school districts nationwide observe Meatless Monday, and vegan options at schools have been on the rise for years. As per Ocka Treats' earlier post, going plant-based doesn't have to be from zero to hero. Taking step, however small it might seem is a good start and would still make a positive impact on personal health and climate crisis. Hurray to NYC taking plant-forward to our schools and children!
