NATIONAL NO ONE EATS ALONE DAY – Changes Annually

On an early Friday in February, lunchrooms across America have accepted the mission started by National No One Eats Alone Day.

No One Eats Alone is a positive prevention initiative from nonprofit Beyond Differences aimed at creating a lunchtime of inclusion. Organized by students for students, middle schools across the nation look beyond differences and find ways to start conversations at lunchtime – with everyone. No one eats alone.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NoOneEatsAloneDay

Join the movement. If your school doesn’t participate, encourage them to start. Create an inclusive lunchroom at your school and encourage each other to engage in positive conversations.

Sometimes it’s hard to break the ice. We’ve provided some conversation starters perfect for lunchtime. So, when you see someone eating alone, you’ll have a few ways to get the conversation started. Don’t be nervous. You can do it!

  • Start with a joke.

  • Offer a compliment.

  • Find something in common.

  • Ask for an opinion about an assignment.

  • Mention a movie you saw this weekend.

  • Tell a funny story about yourself.

  • Talk about the menu – especially your favorite foods.

  • Bring a card game to play.

Find out more at No One Eats Alone and use #NoOneEatsAloneDay to share on social media.

Educators, visit the National Day Calendar® Classroom for lessons and ideas.
