    Exclamation NYC bans meat on Mondays in all NYC public schools

    More rule by fatwa.



    NYC will have ‘Meatless Mondays’ in all public schools

    https://pix11.com/2019/03/11/nyc-wil...ublic-schools/

    POSTED 5:45 PM, MARCH 11, 2019, BY JENNIFER BISRAM, UPDATED AT 06:10PM, MARCH 11, 2019

    NEW YORK — There'll be no mystery meat (or any other meat) on Mondays at New York City public schools.

    That's because the city is expanding its "Meatless Mondays" program in the fall.

    The initiative will provide the system's million students with all-vegetarian breakfast and lunch menus every Monday. Advocates say it promotes healthy, environmentally friendly meal options.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYC Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza made the announcement Monday after having lunch with students at P.S 130 in Brooklyn.

    “We want our kids to be as healthy as they could be and learn as well as they can and meatless Mondays gives them more balance in their lives,” de Blasio said.

    Carranza said all 1,800 of NYC public schools will now have healthy, all vegetarian breakfast and lunch menus every Monday, for free.

    “It will reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer,” Carranza said.

    This comes as a new report reveals more than half of NYC public school students eat lunch before 11 a.m. every day, some as early as 8:50 a.m.

    According to city officials, they’re working to have that changed by next year.

    As for city students, they say they don’t mind eating their fruits and vegetables if it means protecting the earth and preserving their health.

    “It’s awesome every student should have the opportunity to eat healthy and school great place to do that,” said Ciasia Joseph, an 8th grade student at the school.

    Meatless Mondays goes into effect at all NYC public schools beginning this fall.

    Would love to have some of the vegans that used to be around here, that would tell me there won't be "bans on meat", check in on this story.

    Wouldn’t it make more sense to ban just one meal per day for two or three days, then a good source of a growing child’s protein for a whole day?

    He probably just looked at the numbers and found out he could save millions every week by just cutting the meat supplies back by one day.
    The common thread to the paradoxes that we encounter daily is the inconsistency of progressivism itself — or rather its ad hoc adoption of any means necessary to be justified by an anointed end, which is the quest for power and control.

    What ban? they set the menu and they want to make Mondays to be vegetarian. There was a time my parents make fridays meatless, we also did not eat any meat(not even fish) and during lent, someone could say that my parents banned meat for the season.

    They did not ban anything, they set the menu and they want it to be meatless. My guess seeing as they can eat meat during the other 4 days is that they are doing this to cut down on cost. They are not coming for your meat, btw the whole thing with cows and global warming is not them trying to ban meats, its them trying to tax meat more than they are taxing it now.

    Do u really think missing meat one day a week at school is going to negatively affect a kid. Btw, there are other sources of protein other than meat. The kids are going to be OK

    They're cutting out a food group and calling it adding balance?

    All I know is here in NY I have been having a real hard time getting good meat and it has been getting worse year after year. I also notice the meat sections in the supermarkets are getting smaller and smaller. The quality no matter what I buy tastes disgusting and you cannot even chew it half the time.

    It is almost as if they are doing it intentionally to get people off of meat. My beef consumption in some form or other has dropped significantly simply because of it and not because I want to stop eating it.

    Seems like the old hamburgers they served in elementary school were mostly soy anyway.

    This story really begins in the 1930s, with Henry Ford, automaker, soybean believer, chemurgist. "Chemurgy" was a sort of technocratic alliance between agriculturalists and industrialists, a movement that perceived America’s farmland as a source not only of food, but also of raw materials for modern industry. Chemists devised new uses for agricultural surplus and farm wastes: wallpaper and glue from peanut shells; synthetic rubbers from soybeans and corn; ethanol fuels from corn, barley, sweet potatoes, and Jerusalem artichokes; milkweed-stuffed life preservers. These new industrial markets were supposed to keep farmers afloat during the lean years of the Depression, while also providing a foundation for national self-sufficiency and continuing prosperity in a world that increasingly seemed on the brink of another war.

    “Everything pertaining to an automobile has its origin in the earth,” explained one newspaper article in 1936, describing the Ford Motor Company's chemurgic research efforts. “There is no need, as Mr. Ford sees it, to exhaust the mines and forests if the material required can be grown on the farm.” Ford envisioned efficient farm-factories, where renewable materials could be grown, harvested, and processed into plastics, synthetic rubbers, and fuels, a future where his company would one day be in the business of “growing cars out of the ground.”

    In particular, Ford placed a big bet on soy. Soy had been grown commercially in the U.S. since the 1920s, largely as a source of oils and animal feed, but Ford was particularly interested in its uses in phenolic plastics. The scientists at the soybean research laboratory at Ford's vast industrial compound in Dearborn, Michigan were tasked with developing new uses for soy oils and soy meals: in plastics, resins, lubricants, and fuels. Ford automobiles in the 1930s increasingly used soy-based materials in paints and shock absorbers, and featured soy-plastic buttons, knobs, and seats. This project culminated with the “soybean car,” a 1941 prototype whose chassis was (allegedly) made entirely from a soy-based plastic resin. Although the focus was on industrial research, Ford did not entirely ignore the edible potential of the soybean. A vegetarian, Ford was an avid believer in the vital powers of soyfoods. A smorgasborg of soyfoods — including soybean “steaks,” soy milk, and soybean coffee — accompanied the soybean car’s debut.
    ...
    Boyer continued to work on spun proteins after the war, hoping to find a way to create a nutritious edible fiber from material destined for livestock feed or the trash heap. First, though, there was the problem of taste. Earlier attempts to make human foods out of defatted protein-rich soy meal had faltered; traces of soluble carbohydrates and other compounds gave the substance a disagreeably bitter “beany” flavor, and contributed to its unfortunate reputation for causing digestive distress. The introduction of highly refined food-grade soy protein isolates in the 1950s made it possible to produce spun soy fiber without the bitterness or the farting. Purified soy protein isolate produced fibers which were pale, bland, odorless, and highly digestible, an edible blank canvas primed for the application of flavor effects.

    Boyer received a patent for his protein-spinning process in the early 1950s, which he then licensed to various food manufacturers. The first taker was Worthington Foods, an Ohio company that made vegetarian foods primarily for Seventh-Day Adventist communities. Worthington introduced the first commercial spun soy protein product: Fri-Chik, chicken-flavored pre-cooked heat-and-serve patties that were available frozen or in cans.

    Larger food manufacturing and agribusiness companies, including Archer-Daniels-Midland, Swift & Co., and General Foods, licensed Boyer’s patent. But no company invested as much in the potential of spun protein as General Mills, which put Boyer's method at the heart of its synthetic foods research program. At its peak in the 1960s, General Mills’ Isolated Protein Research & Development Program employed more than 50 scientists and technicians, working on ways to scale up spun protein production and develop new kinds of commercial products.
    ...
    Bontrae's second use was as a meat extender, blended with ground beef to reduce meal costs without diminishing nutritional value. Initially, the main market for textured protein meat extenders were institutions, not households. When the National School Lunch Program approved the addition of textured soy protein to meat dishes in 1971, it was a boon to spun protein manufacturers like General Mills and also makers of a competing product, extruded textured soy flours. (How many of my beloved elementary school sloppy joes were bulked with textured soy?) But a consumer market for these products was envisioned as well.

    If you don't eat meat on Monday you might as well not eat meat for the rest of the week.

    This is just the thin end of the wedge, they will expand the number of days involved as time goes on and they will increase the "sin" taxes and eventually they will start to impose rationing and then bans.

    Its not incrementalism. You still live in a country where u can buy 32 oz steak in a restaurant and eat it by yourself, u have buffets where u can eat unlimited chicken wings etc etc. This not incrementalism, this is just a sign of economic decline. You people read too much into these sort of news.

    You just can't grasp the concept, can you?
    Of course we still have those things, BECAUSE WE ARE ONLY AT THE BEGINNING OF THE INCREMENTAL CAMPAIGN AND THERE IS RESISTANCE TO IT.
