UCSC Adopts Meat-Free Mondays

The University of California Santa Cruz has adopted Meat-Free Mondays.

The University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC) campus is now participating in the Meat-Free Monday campaign. UCSC student animal-rights group Banana Slugs for Animals, along with support from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) gathered 1,500 petition signatures from students and presented them to University dining officials. As a result, one dining hall on campus will be meat-free on Mondays, on a rotating basis. “This is more of an educational opportunity for students to learn about different lifestyles,” UCSC Executive Chef Dwight Collins said. “We’re promoting a different way of eating.” PETA reports that University of California San Diego, University of Maryland, and University of Central Florida have all adopted Meat-Free Mondays.
