By all accounts, this September is the best and most celebrated National Family Meals Month™ (NFMM) to date! We’ve seen blog posts, press releases, and television interviews; as well as very creative videos and social media posts. We were also delighted to see NFMM happening in-store with weekly circulars, customer incentive programs and even extending into community outreach programming. National Family Meals Month™ has caught on in the food retail industry, and we couldn’t be happier! We are aware of more than 100 companies and organizations that made NFMM a priority, and we believe that this is only the beginning.
We want to celebrate all of your accomplishments during the month of September! Please share with the FMI Foundation everything that you did throughout the month and nominate your company for the Gold Plate Awards. The application is simple – it shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes, and it will help us get a better understanding of how you celebrated this September.
There are five categories again this year:
- Retailers with 1-49 stores
- Retailers with 50-199 stores
- Retailers with 200+ stores
- Food Manufacturer/Supplier Category
- Community Collaborator
Thank you for all you did to make National Family Meals Month 2017 successful, and we are sitting on the edge of our seats in anticipation of how you continue to grow the program in 2018!
