“Skipping meat one day a week is good for you, great for your nation’s health, and fantastic for the planet. There is no better place to educate our children about health and nutrition than in our nation’s schools!”
Meatless Monday is now in hundreds of public and private K-12 schools in 17 states throughout the U.S, creating a weekly opportunity to introduce more plant-based foods and teach children about healthy eating. With more school cafeterias joining the movement every day, Meatless Monday is an easy, effective and affordable way to boost nutrition and start kids on a lifetime of good eating habits. www.meatlessmonday.com
One great example is the San Diego Unified School District offering delicious vegetarian meals with locally grown fruits and vegetables available every Monday, helping children make better choices and work toward reducing childhood obesity.

Quite Possibly the most Eye Opening Six Minutes Ever on Film
“On this ancient and miraculous world, where such beautiful natural and living things have evolved, something has gone wrong when life itself is used as a manufacturing process. I read that in 50 years, we must adopt a largely vegetarian diet or die, and forgive me if I take that as good news. Something is out of balance, and “Samsara” regards the sides of the equation.”
- ROGER EBERT

My Life as a Turkey
A fascinating glimpse into the lives of animals who are often seen as little more than Thanksgiving centerpieces. The film follows Joe Hutto as he raises 16 turkeys, left on his porch as eggs, from hatchlings to adulthood.
Turkeys on factory farms will be killed when they are only 5 or 6 months old and, during their short lives, will be denied even the simplest pleasures, such as running, building nests, raising their young or even stepping outdoors. Turkeys raised for food will never know the comfort of their mother’s wings or experience the joy of exploring the woods and fields with her.
Each of us can help prevent the needless suffering of turkeys by leaving them, and all animals, off our plates! This holiday season, join the growing number of Americans that are choosing to celebrate by serving delicious vegan fare.
