Sign the Petition

Please join the growing number of students, parents, teachers, health advocates, and sustainability experts who are calling on the Philadelphia School District to adopt the Meatless Monday program. In order to fight childhood obesity and protect the environment, districts across the country—from Los Angles to Detroit, from Buffalo to Oakland—have joined the Meatless Monday movement. A 2014 Philadelphia Magazine poll found that 85% of readers want the Philadelphia School District to adopt a similar policy. And Philadelphia's City Council has issued a resolution officially endorsing Meatless Monday.

Please ask the School District of Philadelphia to help our children eat healthy by going Meatless on Monday!

Testimonials

 

As Philadelphia residents, we wholeheartedly support Meatless Mondays in our schools. Going meat-free for one day each week in schools will benefit public health, the environment and animal welfare. Families will learn about healthy eating and discover alternatives to foods that lead to chronic conditions such as obesity and diabetes while at the same time reducing greenhouse gasses.

 

Leah Jordan, Philly Parent

 


The City of Philadelphia recognizes the benefits of a diet high in fruits and vegetables, and urges residents to participate in “Meatless Mondays” to improve their health and decrease their carbon footprint.

 

Philadelphia City Council


Meat consumption in America is higher than any other country in the world and clearly contributes to heart disease, stroke, and cancer, which are the three leading causes of death in the nation.
