Remember when you were in school and all your classmates were excited about the new government mandated “Meatless Mondays” lunch menu?
You don’t? Well, that’s probably because this is a new “green” idea New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio just came up with.
The mayor announced Monday that NYC’s public school students would be forced to be vegetarian one day per week, at least at lunchtime, in an attempt at reducing climate change.
“Cutting back on meat a little will improve New Yorkers' health and reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” de Blasio said. “We're expanding Meatless Mondays to all public schools to keep our lunch and planet green for generations to come.”
And the agenda keeps being pushed. Why can’t we just eat our steaks, burgers, and Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwiches in peace?
The exciting “Meatless Mondays” menu includes what kid’s “love” (not) - they even have a “kid-friendly kale salad.”
Because we know how many kids are begging their parents for a kale lunch - i.e., zero - so, it’s so great to see they can get it at school now.
The students can also choose to eat a “whole grain rotini pasta with herbed marinara sauce.” Too bad there will be no meatballs or chicken with that.
Even still, some go-greeners seem pretty excited about the new plan.
“Meatless Mondays are good for our students, communities, and the environment,” Richard Carranza, NYC’s school chancellor, said in a statement. “Our 1.1 million students are taking the next step towards healthier, more sustainable lives.”
This announcement actually doesn’t surprise me. What better way to implement your “green” agenda than to force public school students to adopt your ideology?
I really hope these kids bring their own lunch on Mondays from now on. Maybe a delicious sandwich with extra meat?
