Ansonia Library, health district to offer meatless Monday program

ANSONIA - Become meatless on Monday with the Naugatuck Valley Health District. Going meatless on Monday is an easy way to help you get on track with your health.

What is the Meatless Monday Campaign?

Going meatless on Monday dates back to World War I.  The idea of going meatless was to conserve food during times of war.

In 2003, Sid Lerner made the Meatless Monday Campaign.
This turned into a global campaign to prevent illness from excessive meat consumption.

Ansonia Library in partnership with the Naugatuck Valley Health District will offer a program on going meatless on Mondays at noon March 14. The library is at 53 S. Cliff St.

For information call Joyce Ceccarelli at Ansonia Library, 203- 734-6728 or the NVHD, 203-881-3255.

This is a press release from Joyce Ceccarelli, Director, Ansonia Library.
