It’s never too early to get started with menu planning, especially if you’re cooking for a crowd. That’s why even though Family Day isn’t until September 23rd this year, we’re rolling out our Family Day support materials now.

This year, our goal is to leverage Family Day to build and strengthen our community.

You already know that when families sit down for dinner together, it helps kids say no to substance abuse. And kids who say no help to create stronger neighborhoods and healthier families. What you may not have known is that you or your organization can get involved in the festivities by hosting an event. An “event,” could be something as simple as a backyard barbecue with your neighbors, or a dinner party with the parents of your kids’ friends.

 

The possibilities are limited only by your imagination – speakers, games, debates – anything is fair game as long as there’s some sort of activity included that encourages family engagement.

 

Because we’re offering our Family Day partners $1000 reimbursement for expenses, there are a few requirements to be met if you or your organization want to take full advantage of the available support resources.

  1. Events must be promoted as a Family Day – A Day to Eat Dinner with Your Children™ event.
  2. Event must take place between September 1 and September 25, 2013, preferably as close to the designated Family Day, September 23, as possible.
  3. There must be a central activity to the event that highlights family engagement and/or family empowerment. Activities may include, but are not limited to (we welcome creative proposals!).
