Just what the HECK is a Meatless Monday?? (Your questions answered!)

Message from SEAK!


Hey y’all! Recently there’s been a lot of talk about the Meatless Monday campaign on campus through social media. While it’s important to discuss current topics affecting our student body, there has been a lot of misinformation floating around campus in regards to our current campaign to remove meat from the main entrée line on Monday.


To clear things up: Here is our Facebook post containing a list of common questions and misconceptions about Meatless Monday and the benefits from following a meatless or vegan diet.


As always, to find out more information about the social, environmental and health implications about going meatless or for more information about meatless Monday, talk to us! Look for our table outside the common’s entrance every Monday afternoon!


Thanks for reading, and remember: "Don't have a cow, it's meatless monday!"
