The Vancouver Food Policy Council is excited to let you know that the City of Vancouver has proclaimed Monday June 10th, 2013 as Meatless Monday.
While livestock can be good for environments and meat can be good for health, she said, too much is bad for the planet and public health.
We’re grateful to see the City, and our liaison Councillor Heather Deal, willing to get behind this initiative. Vancouver is the first Canadian city to take this step.
How can you get involved?
This proclamation is a chance to celebrate and educate! Whether you are a solo citizen wanting to host a potluck or a community organization with a goal to educate about a plant based diet, we want to hear what you’ve got planned!
