(Newser) – Forget Meatless Mondays: Every day is meatless at New York City's Public School 244, the first public school in the city to offer up an entirely vegetarian menu, the AP reports. (It's thought to be the one of first meat-free elementary schools in the entire country, adds NBC News.) The pre-K through 3rd-grade school started out serving vegetarian lunches three days a week, and the principal says students gravitated toward those options. Included on the menu: tofu wraps, veggie chili, braised black beans and plantains, quesadillas with salsa, falafel and cucumber salad, roasted potatoes, breakfast options including whole-grain banana bread ... and pizza, of course, but only on Fridays.
