We, the undersigned, ask that the University of North Carolina (UNC) Chapel Hill adopt Meatless Monday, an international non-profit initiative established to encourage healthier and more sustainable eating, one step at a time. Reducing intake of animal products can help lessen carbon footprints: a recent article on the United Nations report stated that “A global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change.”* The City of Chapel Hill proclaimed September 2011 as “Meatless Mondays” month, and the county of Durham proclaimed all Mondays as “Meatless Mondays.” Over 60 colleges across the US have implemented the Meatless Monday program in their cafeterias. By adopting Meatless Monday, UNC dining will offer, in addition to their standard options, vegan meal options for each standard offering on Mondays. We ask that these options be highlighted by way of promotional efforts on campus such as signs within dining services and on campus. We further encourage dining staff to mention or highlight these options to students. Thank you for your consideration. * http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/jun/02/un-report-meat-free-diet
