Green Bay, Wisconsin-based Festival Foods is celebrating Family Meals Month with a variety of programs, insights and recipe ideas.
It focuses on helping families enjoy meals through its Food for Neighbors program, which supports about 40 food pantries across Wisconsin.
The Festival Foods Mealtime Mentors are encouraging contributions throughout the month and is sharing stories of how guests, vendors and community partners help families across the state get food on the table. In addition to the community involvement component, they will be sharing recipe ideas, shopping and cooking tips and family meals messaging.
“We know that families are cooking and enjoying meals at home now more than ever, and we applaud them for these efforts. 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 Skogen’s 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, sponsors are providing free Click N’ Go grocery pickup in September for guests who donate to Food for Neighbors. Guests can also take free virtual cooking classes provided by Mealtime Mentors.
Participants can learn how to donate to Food for Neighbors, view partner information and take virtual cooking classes at festfoods.com/familymeals.
