In an effort to raise awareness about Meatless Mondays, a non-profit initiative in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Heath with the goal of reducing meat consumption by 15%, Chef Mario Batali is joining the movement. In all of his 14 restaurants across the country, Batali has agreed to serve at least 2 vegetarian dishes on Mondays.
“The fact is, most people in the U.S. eat way more meat than is good for them or the planet,” maintains Batali. “Asking everyone to go vegetarian or vegan isn’t a realistic or attainable goal. But we can focus on a more plant-based diet. That’s why I’m such a big believer in the Meatless Monday movement!”
