How to Reduce the Environmental Impacts of the Westfield State Dining Commons: Meatless Mondays

This project was created to determine if implementing “Meatless Mondays” in the Dining Commons, the central dining area of the Westfield State campus, was of interest to the members of the Westfield State community. By encouraging a meatless diet once a week, it would allow the community to explore new foods while also helping to reduce the environmental impacts of the campus. To assess the community opinion, an online survey was created and distributed to the campus, giving the community a chance to voice their opinions on the idea of establishing “Meatless Monday” in future semesters. With the results of this survey, the Dining Commons can proceed to make informed decisions and potentially reduce the environmental impacts of Westfield State moving forward.
