Save the World with the Food You Choose to Eat!!!

Did you know that animal agriculture is responsible for more green house gases than all forms of transportation in the world combined!?! One of the aspects of SEAK's Food4Thought campaign is to raise awareness of how our overconsumption of meat is hurting animals and the environment. Therefore, we are trying to gain student's support for a Meatless Monday campaign. However, this campaign is just trying to REDUCE people's meat-intake by making the entree line meatless, but still having meat served everywhere else in the commons like usual (burgers, pizza, etc.). So meat will still be available for those who do not want to participate. If you support this campaign please sign our petition below, so that we can encourage the Commons to
initiate it! Thank you all!
