Fareway Aims To Fill The Table For National Family Meals Month

Family Meals Fareway

Studies show extensive nutrition, social and mental health benefits associated with family meals, according to the Food Marketing Institute Foundation. That’s why Fareway has committed to be an active participant in September’s National Family Meals Month.

People are hungry for help in the kitchen, and Fareway is hoping to spread the word about National Family Meals Month to its customers. The Boone, Iowa-based retailer is offering weekly featured recipes and news segments, dietitian tips and tricks, giveaways on Facebook and Instagram and special offers to keep mealtime easy and affordable, helping families eat more meals together.

“Family meals have been on the decline as many struggle to balance busy schedules and scramble for time to prepare and eat together,” says Fareway corporate dietitian Caitlyn Ferin. “The more convenient, and healthy solutions we can offer, the easier it will be for our customers to return to the table and reap the benefits of doing so.”

Fareway offers regular meal planning assistance at Fareway.com/Health; and during National Family Meals Month, more resources can be found at Fareway.com/Promotions/Family-Meals-Month, in the CentsAble Health magazine and at the full-service meat counter in stores. In addition to these resources, customers will also see a focus on fresh and healthy meal kits and prepared meal options in stores.

As part of Family Meals Month, Fareway is also helping families that are food insecure. The retailer is committed to providing more than 25,000 lbs. of food during the month of September to partners across the region. This translates to nearly 20,000 meals for hungry families, a contribution valued at more than $50,000.
