Meatless Monday at UT School

The Granite School District adopted Meatless Mondays during lunch this October.

Salt Lake City’s Granite School District ran a trial of Meatless Mondays during school lunches this October. The measure was implemented as a way to help the international movement to reduce meat consumption by 15 percent. While the documents from the district specifically say it was not “an attempt to convert meat-eaters to vegetarianism,” Jeff Gratton of the district’s Food Services Department tells KSL news, “It was a way of educating kids on a different way of eating and a different way of seeing food. Not every family in the world eats meat every day.” Gratton also says the district will evaluate findings from the trial to determine if it should become a permanent program.
