MEATLESS MONDAYS 

Kaylee Gustafson '21 met with Food Service Manager Kyle Nakayama about her personal project idea, which involves enacting positive change for the LJA community by raising awareness about personal diets.


Kaylee proposed Meatless Mondays offering a meat-free lunch each week. She felt this would improve students diets, as well as help raise awareness on issues such as making healthy choices, the environmental impact of our food choices, and positively impacting sustainability efforts by conserving land, water and fossil fuels.


As a result, Kyle and Kaylee will partner to have Meatless Mondays at LJA beginning March.
