Less-Meat Mondays

As part of Dining Services continuing commitment to sustainability and wellbeing for diners.  Dining Services is hosting Less-Meat Mondays throughout the Spring semester at each of the Dining Centers.

Focusing on eating more plants while reducing our intake of meat is beneficial to our health, our wallets, and the environment.

By consuming less meat you:

  • Reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and Type II diabetes
  • Can help control high blood pressure & hypertension
  • Can lower your cholesterol by eating more fiber

By consuming less meat we can:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Conserve water
  • Preserve native plant and animal habitats

Consuming less meat is better for the wallet as plant-based proteins are often less expensive than animal-based proteins.
