#MeatlessMay is a social media initiative created by Daniel Velasquez-Wilson & Shanelle Tolley that challenges people to lighten their impact on the earth by going meatless for May.
Rather that is for a few days, once a week, or the entire month, your decision to go meatless will impact the world for the better!
Reduce your animal consumption for the month of May. It is the easiest way to help our planet right now!

A short docufilm telling the story of Missouri Valley College’s very own Vegan & Vegetarian Athletes. Science says nutrition is everything when competing and history says eating meat is essential. You’ve heard it from prime time athletes that without meat that couldn’t compete. This time you'll hear it closer to home on why some of Missouri Valleys fiercest competitors say no to meat!
One of the most powerful steps you can take to improve your health, boost energy levels, and prevent chronic diseases is to move to a plant-based diet. If you’ve seen Forks Over Knives, you know that science shows changing your nutrition is a powerful way to live longer, help the environment, and reduce your risk of getting sick.
For your health, for the environment, or for the animals, there are plenty of good reasons to start eating a plant-based diet.
The question, of course, is how to get there… and how to make it last.
