Meatless Monday

Help Hunger on a Global Level by Participating in Meatless Monday

There is more than enough food in the world to feed the entire human population. So why are more than a billion people still going hungry?

We funnel huge amounts of grain, soybeans, and corn through all the animals we use for food instead of directly feeding the human population.

Harvard nutritionist Jean Mayer estimates that reducing meat production by just 10% in the U.S. would free enough grain to feed 60 million people. Authors Paul and Anne Ehrlich note that a pound of wheat can be grown with 60 pounds of water, whereas a pound of meat requires 2,500 to 6,000 pounds.

If we all cut down on our meat consumption just one day a week, we can make a big difference in global hunger, our own health, and the environment!

Meatless Monday is an international campaign that encourages people to not eat meat on Mondays to improve their health and the health of the planet.
