Switch Up Your Lunch 2020 @ Across Oxfordshire, UK

For the average Oxfordshire citizen, the food that we choose to eat has the most impact on the planet and climate change – particularly meat and dairy products.

So what can you do? Switch Up Your Lunch! On Monday 8th June, join us for what will be a day for veggie/vegan lunches on a historic scale.

Join staff and employers at Oxford’s major companies and institutions reducing the impact of their Monday lunch.  Whether you eat at work, pack your own lunch, go out to eat, or eat at home, we’re inviting Oxford’s citizens and employers to take one or two simple steps to try tasty new meal ideas and reduce the burden of their meal on the planet.

Things that you can do:

  • If you are an employer or institutional caterer, sign up as a campaign participant on goodfoodoxford.org/switchupyourlunch
  • If your employer provides lunch, ask them to serve exclusively vegetarian options on June 8th.
  • If you make your own lunch, make it a vegetarian or vegan meal that day. Watch our calendar for daily online cooking demos during the whole week starting 8th June.
  • If you buy your lunch elsewhere, seek out a vegetarian or vegan option.

And tell us about it! Pledge your own lunch/your organisation’s lunches on our website, share photos on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #SwitchUpYourLunch, tag @goodfoodoxford and tell other people about it!
