In recognition of this year's Earth Day, almost all Atlanta public schools decided that on Friday students would see a big change on their school lunch menus.

No meat.

It was just fruits and vegetables and other non-animal proteins for the kids.

The cafeterias seemed to try to make it interesting.

There were black bean and corn quesadillas in elementary schools, baked buffalo cauliflower in middle schools and black bean burgers and garden vegetable pizzas in high schools, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

And what does a meatless menu have to do with Earth Day?

It’s a partnership between Atlanta Public Schools and the Humane Society of the United States to promote health and environmental conservation, the paper said, citing the Humane Society.

The Journal-Constitution reported that city schools have at least one vegetarian menu option every day. They even offer kale smoothies, the paper said.
