Meat Free Mondays in San Francisco

San Francisco supervisor proposes meat-free Mondays

San Francisco is the latest city to join Sir Paul McCartney's growing meat free monday campaign. San Francisco supervisor Sophie Maxwell has introduced a meat free monday resolution.
Maxwell's measure declares every Monday as "Vegetarian Day" to urge restaurants, grocery stores and schools to offer more plant-based options.

Maxwell is a vegetarian and she believes if residents gave up meat once a week, it would improve their health. Her resolution would not require meatless Mondays, but would encourage them.

San Francisco would become the first American city to embrace Meatless Monday.

Wow - I love it. I think everyone should do meat free mondays. Think of all the animals it would save and all of the benefits that could come of it. I wonder if I could get people to try this in my community just for the heck of it and maybe someday businesses too... Go M.F.M!
