Family Mealtimes Matter

Family Mealtimes Matter is a collaboration between Cornell Cooperative Extension, Eat Smart New York!, and Price Chopper supermarkets, to encourage families to eat more healthy meals together. The project was born, in part, out of Cornell Cooperative Extension’s long standing commitment to fostering strong, active, and healthy families and individuals. Research shows that not only is eating together a key element in helping people achieve their nutritional goals, it just might go a long way in preventing a variety of other physical and social ills because food connects people!
