5 Reasons Food Brings Families Together

September is the beginning of the school year, a month that gets overloaded with afterschool sports and homework, and other activities. Through all of this, September is also National Family Meals Month. At EATS, we believe that Family Meals Month can be celebrated year-round. We’ve put together a series of videos about the connection folks feel to food and the importance of family meals. Check out the videos below to see how food brings our community together at dinnertime and beyond.
