The Family Meals Movement is for everyone!

Our Mission

Family meals eaten at home have been proven to benefit the health and wellness of children and adolescents, to fight obesity, substance abuse and to make families stronger—creating a positive impact on our communities and our nation as a whole.

Food retailers are uniquely positioned to make family meals at home easier to accomplish. As the association of food retailers, it is the mission of FMI, the Food Industry Association, and its Foundation to highlight the role of grocers and to bring our industry together around a family meal movement encouraging one more meal at home per week.

The family meal movement will culminate in September with National Family Meals Month. We invite you to join the movement and celebrate National Family Meals Month!
