According to PETA2:

Baltimore City Public Schools
Baltimore, Maryland
Baltimore may not be the first city that comes to mind when talking about great vegan food, but Baltimore City Public Schools recently decided to focus on student health. The school district has adopted Meatless Mondays, which means that no meat is served in its schools on Mondays! The district teamed up with local farmers and distributors to provide its students with fresh, locally raised fruits and vegetables. Menu items also include black-bean nachos, vegetarian chili, and veggie lasagne.
