What is Meatless Mondays?

It’s Worldwide!

Meatless Monday was founded in 2003 by Sid Lerner in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. In May, 2009, Ghent, Belgium, became the first non-U.S. city to go meatless. Shortly thereafter, Paul McCartney introduced the U.K. to Meat-Free Mondays.

Meatless Monday is now active in 36 countries and growing because every nation can bring its unique culture, customs and cuisine to the table in meat free and vegetarian dishes.

Skipping meat one day a week is good for you, great for your nation’s health, and fantastic for the planet. For help launching Meatless Monday where you live, get in touch the Meatless Mondays group or download their toolkits.
