OMU, is that who I think it is?! And still meatless, after all this time.
As usual, the MMU is available via flickr to send to your forgetful Meatless Monday-practicing friends.
Oakland City Council adopts citywide Meatless Mondays! »
Looks like one Bay Area city is earning its MMU badge of honor! Just like the city of Los Angeles and the Oakland Unified School District, the city of Oakland has resolved that Mondays should be meatless.
What does that entail? Not the Meatless Monday police yanking the animal parts off omnivores’ plates, of course. “The resolution encourages residents to eat meat-free meals on Mondays and restaurants, businesses, and other local institutions to offer more plant-based foods at the start of every week to improve community health, environmental sustainability, and to reduce the number of animals factory farmed.”
What’s your favorite place to eat meatless in Oakland? Check out our Oakland tag for suggestions, and if we haven’t covered it, let us know! Then share the best meatless (read: animal-productless) spots with your omnivorous friends and neighbors. What if they don’t know about Timeless Coffee yet? Take them on a Monday!

Hey, it’s a special UC Berkeley edition of the Meatless Monday Unicorn! I made this a while back for their Meatless Monday initiative and found it recently. Thought I’d share! Because sharing is, etc! But it’s as relevant as ever because I think MMU is taking some summer classes and will hopefully pass on some of his new knowledge to us in the next months. We’ll see.
Speaking of which, you can share this MMU through flickr! Or right from this post. Whatever the kids are doing these days. Just make sure you remind your omni friends that it’s Meatless Monday once again!
Is that who I think it is?! Why, yes! The Meatless Monday Unicorn is back! And he has a New Year’s suggestion for all the slackers still waiting to make resolutions. Welcome him back!
Los Angeles City Council passes Meatless Monday resolution! »
Good job, Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jan Perry and Councilman Ed Reyes! With the support of your colleagues, you made L.A. the largest U.S. city to lend its support to Meatless Mondays. Which is great! We are proud of your initiative.
Of course, we see this as ascending one more rung on the meatless ladder, eventually achieving such heights as Ghent’s civic Vegetarian Thursdays, and one day going full veg, once we become a totally socialist nation of bread lines and communes omg—but for now, it is a good step, a non-binding resolution, and we applaud it. As does our Meatless Monday spokesbeing, we’re sure.
We love you, Los Angeles! Congratulations!

Okay, okay, it’s not Meatless Monday but we thought MMU could give you a heads-up to stay awesome and meatless for Halloween tomorrow! Do it to it, sluts!
The Meatless Monday Unicorn is clearly nonplussed, as per usual. If you don’t know about the situation with the USDA and Meatless Monday, catch up.
As always, you can send the MMU directly to your omni pals via flickr.
Hey, MMU! Thanks for the business advice. It’s great to see you applying your MBA.
You can check out the Meatless Monday Unicorn on Flickr to send to your omni pals!
Meatless Monday Unicorn, you always know just what to say. Such a romantic!
Make sure you remind your omnivorous homies that it’s time for Meatless Monday once again! You can send this handy MMU reminder from flickr.
Today is FARM’s Meatout! We totally forgot, what with every day being a meatout at Vegansaurus HQ. Thank goodness we had someone to remind us. The MMU is throwing a party—what are you doing to celebrate?
