|Subject:||Resolution Recognizing September 2019 as "Family Meals Month"|
|In the next couple of weeks, I will introducing a resolution to recognize September 2019 as "Family Meals Month."
September is the perfect month to join in the conversation that encourages and inspires people to return to the kitchen to enjoy wholesome meals together.
Each September, our country celebrates National Family Meals Month-- a nationwide event designed to support families in enjoying more meals together using items purchased at the grocery store and, as a result, reap the many health and benefits of doing so. The aim is simple: pledge to have one more meal together, at home, per week.
More than 8 in 10 parents say it is important to eat at home together as a family and, those who miss dinners, in particular, say they are trying to eat with their children more often. This is our mission.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this resolution to recognize “Family Meals Month.”
