No One Eats Alone® Day is student-led celebration that teaches everyone how to make friends at lunch, often the most difficult part of the school day. This year, No One Eats Alone day falls on Valentine’s Day, February 14.
There’s still time to sign up and request the free materials to launch your very own No One Eats Alone Day at your school. Visit the website to request yours. Backpacks containing teacher guides, wristbands, stickers, posters, balloons and supplies for a community art project are still available! You can still request online-only materials, as well.
No One Eats Alone works to prevent bullying before it starts by teaching students to lead the movement to change the culture of middle school. Dozens of teens in 4 communities including Marin County, Oakland, and San Mateo, California and Portland, Oregon lead the initiative.
The group’s curriculum is aligned with CASEL SEL competencies and Common Core ELA standards.
In 2019, over 2,500 schools across the United States celebrated National No One Eats Alone Day.
