Sacramento Passes Resolution to Make Mondays Meat-Free!
To honor of Paul McCartney, who will be playing the opening night concert at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento in October, the city has passed a resolution to adopt Meatless Mondays, according to The Sacramento Bee.
The resolution was passed Tuesday night and it “encourages residents to take a break from animal-based eating for one day a week.” Crystal Strait, chief of staff to the mayor, stated:
“It’s been Farm to Fork Week…and one of the things we realized would be fun to do and exciting for the whole city was this resolution. It’s super cool that this city isn’t just giving (McCartney) a swag bag, we’re doing something to celebrate something that is important to him.”
October will also be a great month for plant-based eaters in Sacramento since many local restaurants are celebrating McCartney by offering customized meat-free dishes, including “Maybe I’m Amazed Rice Crispy French Toast” and “The Lovely Linda.” McCartney will be performing on October 4 and 5, and as The Sacramento Bee notes, “food vendors in Golden 1 Center will also add meatless chow to their menus for his shows.”
