Meat Free Week is Back! May 1 - 7, 2021
Updated: Apr 14, 2021
We are excited to announce that Meat Free Week is back for its 2nd annual campaign! Held May 1-7, young people and adults alike take the Pledge to not eat meat for a week and join the fight against climate change.
After receiving a $1000 grant from BC Green Games last year, we have been busy updating our website and designing some pretty cool swag for this year's Meat Free Week participants.
We also donated $200 cash (and a little sweat equity) to our school's gardening program, which provides students with nutritious vegetables and helps build their food knowledge and gardening skills! We love the idea of supporting our school garden program because while eating less meat can help prevent climate change, so can growing and eating local food. It produces fewer transportation emissions, is fresher and supports local farmers...Yayyy!
Thank you to Watercrest Construction and Southridge Building Supplies for donating the expertise and lumber needed to upgrade our school garden beds. We are so thankful for your sponsorship and can't wait to get planting and growing vegetables soon!
