Chef Jamie Smith, senior manager of food services and nutrition in
Santa Cruz, CA, introduced Meatless Monday to Santa Cruz schools and
seeks to reduce meat consumption in student diets for several reasons,
including health, the state of the environment, food safety and ethics.
Students seem to enjoy the new meals that include the familiar tacos and
hamburgers, but also new items such as curries and samosas. To learn

It's fantastic that Santa Cruz schools are setting the example by
adopting Meatless Mondays! Hopefully many more schools will follow and
reduce the animal products served in their cafeterias. Students should
be exposed as much as possible to the consequences of their food choices
on their health, the environment and God's animals.
