Don't have a cow man
Did you know that we Aussies consume a whopping average of 113kg of meat per person per annum! It is twice the recommended dietary guidelines of meat and almost three times as much as the world average.

The national week is dedicated to raising awareness of the amount of meat Australians eat and the impact it has on human health, the environment and the welfare of animals.



Participants of Meat Free Week are sponsored to go without meat, including seafood for seven days in order to raise funds for one of three leading charities: Bowl Cancer Australia (health), The Australian Conservation Foundation (environment) and Voiceless, the animal protection institute (animal welfare).

This year's campaign will be supported by a raft of famous faces, including musician Ben Lee and actor Krew Boylan and respected experts in the areas of health, the environment and animal welfare.

The website will have delicious meat free recipes from leading chefs Simon Bryant, Belinda Jeffery and Bill Granger, so be sure to check this out.



In 2013 the Meat Free Week was launched to raise awareness of excessive meat consumption and the animals harmed by factory farming. So this year The Australia's Annual Meat Free Week has returned and is bigger and better!

So let us join in and make this small change to our health, the environment and of course animal welfare!

All donations can be made on the website. You can donate as an individual or as a team or a business.
