Meat-Free San Francisco

San Francisco becomes the first US city to vote in favor of encouraging Meat-Free Mondays citywide.

Yesterday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted in favor of a resolution that encourages local restaurants, grocery stores, and schools to support Meat-Free Mondays. The resolution declares that Mondays be observed as "Vegetarian Day," and requests a greater variety of plant-based options to improve the health of Bay Area residents. City Supervisor Sophie Maxwell introduced the motion, which makes San Francisco the first US city to promote eating meat-free one day per week. The resolution began as a grassroots initiative led by the San Francisco Vegetarian Society and In Defense of Animals. In October 2009, Baltimore City Public Schools in Baltimore, MD, banned meat from its Monday menus, and a similar program has been proposed for Manhattan city schools.
