JAFFREY-RINDGE MIDDLE SCHOOL AND NH HEALTHY FAMILIES PARTICIPATE IN NATIONAL NO ONE EATS ALONE DAY
NH Healthy Families recently sponsored the Jaffrey-Rindge Middle School student celebration of National No One Eats Alone® Day, a positive prevention initiative designed to promote inclusion among students.
Representatives from NH Healthy Families hosted an assembly in honor of No One Eats Alone Day, created by the non-profit Beyond Differences™. More than 300 Jaffrey-Rindge students participated in activities designed to teach them about social isolation and the negative impact it can have on a student’s health and academic performance. The students then engaged in a simple act of kindness at lunch – making sure no one is eating alone by sitting with students who they didn’t know. They were given ice breaker topics to spur conversations and highlight their commonalities.
