Meat Free Week is about making the choice to eat less meat, care more and feel good.
An annual campaign, taking place on 1-8 August 2016, Meat Free Week challenges participants to give up meat for seven days and raise money money via sponsorship.
Going meat free for one week creates a great opportunity to get people thinking about how much meat they eat and the impact eating too much meat may have.
With education, awareness and the information to make informed choices, the goal is that for the other 51 weeks of the year meat-eaters will consider portion sizes when including meat as part of a balanced diet.
