Far Left New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced that he will be implementing ‘Meatless Mondays’ in the New York school system to combat global warming.
The program was originally tested on 15 public schools in Brooklyn in 2018 but de Blasio is now announcing that the entire public school system in the city will be only eating vegetarian food on Mondays.
Check out what NBC Boston reported:
“Meatless Mondays” is a national initiative that focuses on healthy, environmentally friendly meal options. According to the city, this past fall, the pilot was brought to schools citywide in order to evaluate student feedback on a broader scale. The decision to implement “Meatless Mondays” across city schools came following an evaluation of participation metrics and student feedback.
City officials say the expansion will be cost-neutral, and the Department of Education’s Office of Food and Nutrition Services will meet with students to get qualitative feedback before the menu for fall is finalized.
So why is de Blasio forcing kids to not eat meat? Well according to the New York mayor, not serving meat on Mondays will fight global warming and save money.
“Cutting back on meat a little will improve New Yorkers’ health and reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement. “We’re expanding Meatless Mondays to all public schools to keep our lunch and planet green for generations to come.”
NYC Mayor de Blasio Rolls Out ‘Meatless Mondays’ In Public Schools To Combat ‘Global Warming’

Seriously? Anyone who thinks that not eating meat in New York on Mondays is going to reduce greenhouse gas emissions needs to get their head checked. This is just another attempt by the Left to push their radical agenda so they can implement more control on the citizens of their society. It’s interesting how the NYC mayor is willing to force feed children vegetarian garbage to “reduce greenhouse gas emissions” but he has no problem showing up to the gym with a group of gas guzzling SUVs. Just more hypocrisy from the Left!
It’s also interesting how De Blasio is implementing ‘Meatless Monday’s’ to save money, but according to Fox News the liberal mayor and his wife have wasted over a billion dollars of unaccounted-for taxpayer dollars. But trust him!! Forcing kids to not eat meat on Mondays is really going to help save money!
De Blasio isn’t very well liked by New Yorkers but they are REALLY going to not like him now. Check out what Fox News reported:
But de Blasio isn’t taking the hint that voters just aren’t that into him. He’s on the campaign trail, taking shots at his predecessor, Michael Bloomberg, who was eyeing a 2020 bid before (correctly) concluding there was no path for a centrist in today’s hard left Democratic nominating process.
Never content to take the high road, de Blasio sniped at Bloomberg’s progressive credentials, adding he had “no chance” to capture the nomination. Call it a case of envy because whether you agree with him or not, Bloomberg accomplished far more on issues near and dear to the left than de Blasio ever will, both in and out of politics. On guns, climate change, immigration, Bloomberg outpaced de Blasio at every turn. Ditto with his overall leadership of the city.
The Left is becoming so obsessed with radical, outlandish ideas that they are literally turning people away from their party. The fact of the matter is ‘Meatless Mondays’ aren’t about saving money or saving the environment. It’s all about controlling the daily lives of New Yorkers with liberal ideas.
