John Muir Middle School and Health Net Celebrate National No One Eats Alone Day

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 20 febbraio 2019

Students, professional athletes and a corporate leader came together at John Muir Middle School in Los Angeles today to celebrate a positive prevention initiative designed to promote inclusion.Representatives from Health Net, LLC (Health Net) hosted an assembly in honor of National No One Eats Alone® Day, created by the non-profit Beyond Differences™. 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 also heard from Chargers Nick Dzubnar and Isaac Rochell who addressed the issue and challenged the students to make a difference at their school. Together, the students then demonstrated inclusion and sat with classmates at lunch who they didn’t know, or who may feel left out. To help, they were given ice breaker topics to discuss to highlight their commonalities.
Social isolation affects millions of students and has been identified as a precursor to bullying, self-harm and community violence. Students have shown that if they are given the tools, they will stand up for others as empathetic and caring activists, not passive bystanders.
The Los Angeles Chargers are partnering with Health Net for National No One Eats Alone Day to raise awareness of social isolation. Health Net also partners with the Chargers for the Chargers’ Play60 camps, which are free youth football camps in the Los Angeles community. John Muir Middle School was one of more than 2,250 schools across the country that celebrated National No One Eats Alone Day. The initiative reached more than one million students in all 50 states. This is the third consecutive year that Health Net has partnered with Beyond Differences™ and California schools for No One Eats Alone Day, which is sponsored by the Centene Charitable Foundation.
