London School First Meat Free Monday

School Food Trust | The PETA foundation launches Meat-Free Monday

There are now 2 schools signed up to the 5 a Day Concept in London, Barham Park Primary School in Wembley North London and Townley Grammar School in Bexleyheath Kent.

PETA Foundation has produced two Meat-Free Monday resource packs for teachers. The packs contain activities, assembly ideas, lesson plans and a colour poster. Schools participate by serving nourishing meat-free meals and calculating the impact that their pupils and teachers have on the environment and animals with PETA Foundation's Meat-Free Monday Calculator.

"Pupils will learn that what they eat can help them be responsible global citizens", explains PETA Foundation Manager Suzanne Barnard. "By going meat-free once a week at lunchtime and participating in the accompanying lessons and projects, they can see how the choices they make today can affect future generations and help prevent climate change."

The project addresses four pressing issues

* climate change,
* global poverty,
* increasing rates of obesity,
* animal welfare.
