September is National Family Meals Month. Whether you’re discussing the toughest issues facing your community or what happened that day on the playground, bringing family, friends and community members together for a meal and conversation can be a powerful experience. We know this well from our On the Table initiative—and, a recent article from the Huffington Post talks about a campaign that reminds families why it’s important to eat together, and encourages families to do so more often.
More good news from around the Web:

Have a great weekend.
