NYC Pilots Meatless Mondays in 15 Schools

Fifteen NYC public schools in Brooklyn will participate in Meatless Mondays, all-vegetarian breakfast and lunch menus, in Spring 2018. The goal is to improve health by exposing students to vegetarian options while also reducing the environmental impacts of the school meal service. The pilot was championed by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who became vegetarian and has been able to overcome a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes. DOE’s Office of SchoolFood will involve school districts across Brooklyn to finalize the fifteen participating school.
