Have you taken the Meatless Monday Needham pledge to serve healthy plant-based meals on Mondays (or any day of the week) for 12 weeks?
This is a reminder that the prize drawing for those who have taken the pledge will take place at the end of the day on October 31! Three winners will receive a Purple Carrot meal kit with ingredients for 3 plant-based meals.
Also, at that time, for each pledge received, $1 will be donated to the Needham Food Pantry, up to $250.
Between the upcoming election and the effects of the pandemic, it’s hard to focus on much else, but one thing is certain — we all have to eat!
Taking the pledge is an excellent way to benefit your health, benefit the Needham Food Pantry, and help cut greenhouse gas emissions by reducing meat consumption. The Meatless Monday team offers delicious recipes and ideas about educational events through the Meatless Monday Needham newsletter and their website and Facebook page.
The initiative is a collaborative effort of the Needham League of Women Voters, Green Needham, and the Needham Community Farm, and is endorsed by the Needham Board of Health. Explore the Meatless Monday Needham website for information about the health and environmental benefits of eating less meat and more plant-based foods, such as fruits, vegetables, beans, soy, and nuts.
The Meatless Monday Needham initiative will be continuing beyond October, but we encourage you to pledge now to be included in the prize drawing and increase the donation to the Needham Food Pantry!
