Family Meals Month - Food for Neighbors

Festival Foods is celebrating Family Meals Month in September with a variety of programs, insights and recipe ideas to encourage families to enjoy meals together and help others achieve family meals as well.

This year’s campaign focuses on helping families across the state of Wisconsin participate in family meals through Festival Foods’ Food for Neighbors program, which collects donations to provide food and supplies to approximately 40 food pantries in Wisconsin. The Festival Foods Mealtime Mentors are encouraging contributions throughout the month and sharing stories of how guests, vendors and community partners help families across the state get food on the table. In addition, the Mealtime Mentors are educating our community on the importance of family meals by sharing recipe ideas as well as shopping and cooking tips.

“We applaud the efforts families make to cook and enjoy meals together. Family meals nourish the spirit, brain and health of all family members, and they also help keep us connected,” said Casey Wing, registered dietitian and digital content specialist for Festival Foods. “We encourage families to continue these beneficial habits and consider donating to programs that help others do the same.”

As part of their efforts, Festival Foods Family Meals Month Supporters are providing free Click N Go grocery pickup throughout the month for guests who donate to Food for Neighbors. Guests can also follow @festfoods on Instagram and Facebook for recipe ideas provided by the Mealtime Mentors to help inspire family meals at home.
