Family Meals Month

National Family Meals Month

Each September, our country celebrates National Family Meals Month™ - a nationwide event created to encourage families to come together as a family and enjoy more meals using items purchased at the grocery store. Why does it matter? Making a point to have more meals together as a family promotes mental and physical health benefits, as well as promoting positive social behaviors.

September is Family Meals Month!
