National Eat Together Week and click for a cause to feed America
Posted Sep 21 2009 12:00am
I’m helping out the National Pork Board to encourage you and your family to participate in National Eat Together Week, September 20-26, 2009. This event encourages families to eat together WHENEVER they can find time – breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Stop by your child’s school and eat lunch with your son or daughter. Get up a few minutes early and have breakfast together. Or make plans to get the family around the dinner table at least once this week!
Our favorite time during the week is to get together for dinner while watching NBC’s the Biggest Loser. My husband and I take time during the show to explain to the kids the importance of good nutrition and fitness.
Beginning at midnight Sunday, September 20, in partnership with Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief charity, America’s pork producers are encouraging you to “click for a cause.” Click on the National Eat Together Week badge in this post. You’ll be taken to a special webpage where you can download or email a recipe. For every recipe printed or shared via email from the special National Eat Together Week website, America’s pork producers will donate five pounds of pork (or about 25 meals) to a food bank in need.
Bloggers can help out by posting the badge above on their own blog, too. (You can get the code here.)
