Love Your Lunch!

Rice balls. Curry. Pancit. Dumplings. The lunches our children bring to school are more than food—they are a nourishing connection to family and heritage.

Yet too often for Asian American and Pacific Islander children—and others with culturally diverse foods—bringing lunch to school can become a source of shame and distress.

LOVE YOUR LUNCH aims to change that by nurturing curiosity about the foods we cherish, and encouraging children to take pride in their families’ food traditions. Use our art project template, parent/educator guides, and other resources to learn about loving your lunch at home, or bring this project to your school or community. There are many ways you can participate in this campaign:

Share a video or post on social media about your favorite lunch and tag #loveyourlunch and @loveyourlunchorg! Be sure to follow @loveyourlunchorg on Instagram and check out the launch video featuring kids from AAPI Montclair.

Students: Download our art project template and participate in our art contest! Show us why you love your lunch and win some neat prizes!
Read our guides for students, parents, and educators on how to respond to lunch-shaming and encourage food acceptance.

New Jersey public school pre-K to 2nd grade teachers are invited to apply for our Love Your Lunch box giveaway! Receive a box of books, guides, and some fun extras for you to support your students in loving their lunches.
