Learn to "Eat With a Conscience" Saturday at the South Florida Wildlife Center
Meatless Monday has been around for quite some time, since WWI, actually. At that time, however, it was more about rationing meat during wartime than health, environmental, or animal-rights issues.
"Most of the work of the Humane Society is dogs, cats, and wildlife, but we're concerned about the treatment of all animals," says Shapiro. "What we're trying to do here is help people understand that each one of us can make a difference for animals every time we sit down to eat. It's not all or nothing. It's hard to break a lifetime of ingrained eating habits. I think the point is just to make some progress. The vast majority of Americans are eating meat every day of their lives, and it doesn't have to be that way."
