It’s September and that means it is National Family Meals Month! All over the country food retailers and manufactures are committed to helping families share one more meal together each week at home with items from the grocery store.

To celebrate family meals and kick off this month long movement, we’ve launched a consumer website with resources and fun ways to get involved. Visit for more details and look for updates on social media using #FamilyMealsMonth and #RaiseYourMitt.

As we begin our month-long celebration, here’s a preview of what some food retailers have planned for September. We’ll be sharing more on how our industry is helping family meals happen throughout the month on our blog, Voice of Food Retail.
