Oxfam Endorses Meatless Mondays Following Study

The international relief and development organization is endorsing Meatless Mondays after an internal study links animal agriculture to hunger issues.

In wake of the controversy surrounding the US Department of Agrictulture’s Meatless Mondays retraction, Ben Grossman-Cohen, press officer for Oxfam America’s GROW Campaign, is explaining why the international relief and development organization is endorsing the idea. In a piece for CNN, Grossman-Cohen explains, “Meatless Mondays might seem like an unlikely cause for a humanitarian organization ... but Oxfam is working on this issue because … eating less meat is a simple way to reduce the pressure on global resources and help ensure that everyone has enough to eat.” The organization’s study further highlights examples of water and climate change issues brought about by animal agriculture, but for Grossman-Cohen the bottom line is true to Oxfam’s mission, “To say it simply, eating less meat helps fight hunger.”
