how can you participate?

Once you have made your pledge (which you can do on this page), you will receive a welcome email, and then a weekly newsletter (starting the first week of March) with recipe ideas, information and inspiration, as well as updates on what is happening with our local campaign.

We are on facebook and instagram @MeatlessMondayPR, and you can access those pages anytime for recipe ideas and inspiration. We would love it if you share pictures of YOUR meatless meals, or recipes that you have found you love too!

If your pledge changes between March and June, please let us know so we can make our calculations as accurate as possible. You can change your pledge anytime simply by filling the pledge form out again with your new information. You will receive an email that will then allow you to click through and make your changes official.

How will your pledge make a difference?

We will be making 2 calculations at the end of this campaign:

First, we will be calculating the overall impact of people who have let us know that they are eating plant-based foods for all the days of the week they are doing it (so even if you are already vegetarian or vegan, or eating plant-based part time, let us know that you are doing this);

Second, we will be calculating the impact of people who are practicing meatless days as a new initiative in response to this campaign. 

Eating plant-based meals can be a delicious adventure – there are so many wonderful plant-strong recipes out there to discover! Eating more whole plant foods is a wonderful thing to do for your health too. Visit our resources page for links to some great recipe blogs to explore!

Not only is mortality from coronary heart disease lower in vegetarians than in non-vegetarians, but vegetarian diets have also been successful in arresting coronary heart disease. Scientific data suggest positive relationships between a vegetarian diet and reduced risk for…obesity, coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and some types of cancer.
