THE FAMILY DINNER PROJECT

We've partnered with The Family Dinner Project (TFDP) to bring more families together around the table. 

Trained in the planning and facilitation of TFDP events, Montana No Kid Hungry staff can help support your community in hosting its own community dinner that brings families together and provides valuable tools to make dinners happen at home. 

Check out The Family Dinner Project to learn more about why eating together is so important, and how the program works.

In partnership with Share Our Strength, Montana No Kid Hungry facilitates interactive Cooking Matters at the Store tours to teach low-income families four key food shopping skills: buying fruits and vegetables on a limited budget, identifying whole grains, comparing unit prices and reading food labels. The 60 to 90 minute tour is led by skilled facilitators with varied backgrounds: culinary professionals, health professionals, WIC coordinators, Head Start staff and teachers, etc.
