Wholesome Minnesota and its future

Saturday, February 24, 2024
11:00am - 12:00pm

CAA’s Wholesome Minnesota initiative is a transformative program that works to bring plant-based food to cafeterias. Its goal is to educate and inspire young people about the environmental, cultural, health and animal welfare implications of animal agriculture. In doing so, it empowers our youth to make change. 

However, we have recently encountered some hurdles at the district level in getting schools to serve plant-based meals. Join us via Zoom from 11am to noon to learn more about the program and collectively brainstorm innovative ways to address these hurdles and expand our impact.  We’ll also share ways you can get involved in this work. The full agenda is below.

To register, just answer a few short questions. It should take 3 minutes or less. We will then send you the zoom link to participate.

We look forward to having you join us! Thank you for sharing your thoughts to help advance this important work.
