Chicago-Area High School Adopts Meatless Monday

Evanston Township High School is the first high school in the Chicago area to offer meatless lunch options once a week.

Kicking off 2013 with a lunch menu that included meatless dishes such as tofu stir-fry and black bean burgers, Evanston Township High School Director of Nutritional Services Kim Minestra believes the Meatless Monday campaign is in line with the school’s health and sustainability efforts. Students had approached Minestra asking for meat-free options, and she listened; sharing Meatless Monday fliers and sending teachers an informational video, Minestra says, “There’s no reason why you have to have the center of your plate always be a piece of red meat or chicken. You can still get protein in other ways.” According to The Daily Northwestern, the vegetarian meals were no more expensive for the school to offer than previous options.
