Score one for Glen Cove’s Girl Scouts Troop 1844. They have made it easier for those looking to eat less meat and more plants for an overall healthy diet.
Thanks to the troop, area restaurants will feature meatless options to their menus on Mondays in July. The restaurants include:
Amalfi, American Café, Glen Cove Bagel Café, Cedar Creek Grille, Delicious Pizza, Downtown Café, Glen Cover Diner, La Bussola, La Ginestra, Marras, Page One, Stango’s and Sweet Tomato, according to the City of Glen Cove's website. With some eateries closed on Mondays, at least two of these restaurants – Downtown Cafe and Stango's – indicated that they will offer the option on Tuesdays.
Meatless Monday is a non-profit initiative of The Monday Campaigns, in association with the Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health.
“By cutting out meat once a week, we can improve our health, reduce our carbon footprint and lead the world in the race to reduce climate change,” the organization claims on its website.
In June, Girl Scouts Troop 1844 announced on its Facebook page that it earned the Bronze Award in Girl Scouting by learning, adopting and publicizing Meatless Monday.
