If you’re a regular at the prepared-foods section at Whole Foods Market, you’ll like this: The grocery chain now has a pretty sweet Meatless Monday deal. It goes like this: Every Monday, you can load up a container with as many meat-free items as you can fit for the flat price of $8.
Remember last fall when the Philadelphia City Council passed a resolution in support of Meatless Mondays in Philly? The group that helped usher the measure through City Hall is now turning its attention to Philadelphia public schools.
The Philly-based animal rights organization, the Humane League, just launched an initiative urging the School District of Philadelphia to take up the Meatless Monday cause in its own cafeterias. The objective: to get public schools to offer an entire menu of vegetarian options—and only vegetarian options—every Monday, every week of the school year.
