Six families from the Loving Tree School gathered for "Food Fun and Meaningful Conversation" around the UCF dinner tables in Ferndale Washington.  This event was our first "Community Dinner" (aka locally as "Family Cook-Ins") and was designed using  The Family Dinner Project  core ideas. Over the next five days we will share how the FDP Organizers Toolkit helped us plan the "Family Cook-In" and make it such a fun-filled experience for everyone.

Part one: The Goal:

The goals we established for our first Family Cook-In were very specific:

  • Design child-centered activities so that 3 to 5-year-olds have fun and stay engaged in thoughtful conversation.
  • Move parents to try out the "4-Week Plan for Better Family Meals"
  • Connect with four organizations & form partnerships to promote Healthy Futures.
