California State University, Chico is the latest institution to offer Meatless Monday by increasing its meat-free options on Mondays. The university is also working to educate students about the health benefits of eating more meat-free meals.
“Cal State University, Chico Dining Services is committed to ensuring the good health of our students, and being a good steward to our planet and animals, which is why we’re participating in Meatless Monday,” said George Rankin, dining services director at California State University, Chico.
Students will be able to choose from fresh new dishes such as green chili and olive enchilada casserole with black beans, pico de gallo and fresh lettuce, as well as, teriyaki edamame stir fry with Napa cabbage and steamed rice.
The Meatless Monday campaign began in 2003 at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to promote cutting out meat one day a week for the health of the planet as well as the health of participants.
