Just what is Mix It Up at Lunch Day?
Mix it up is a national campaign launched by Teaching Tolerance a decade ago, Mix It Up at Lunch Day encourages students to identify, question and cross social boundaries.
Students have identified the cafeteria as the place where divisions are most clearly drawn. So on one day, nationwide – October 18 this school year – students had a chance to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch.
The teen leadership and senior mentor groups asssited students at Wilcox to mix it up at lunch on October 18, 2011.
