Bowdoin Dining Will Serve a "Meatless Monday" Dinner
Monday, Feb 21
Bowdoin Dining is working with a large and growing group of student organizations and athletic teams to offer a dinner menu without meat in an attempt to highlight the health and environmental benefits of a diet with less meat!
Alongside the support of the Environmental Studies Department, campus organizations co-sponsoring the event include Peer Health, Bowdoin Democrats, EcoReps, Food Co-op, International Club, Evergreens, Green Global, Initiatives, Ping Pong Club, the Italian Club, EleMental, and others. Athletic teams involved include the women’s volleyball, Nordic skiing, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, women’s basketball, and women’s rugby team as well as members of the field hockey and lacrosse teams.
Dining will provide additional items at the salad bar with high-protein content such as eggs, beans, tofu, and grains to ensure that those worried about their protein consumption at the meal can satisfy their nutritional needs.
